e-Sword Version:

Civil Government:

It's Origin, Mission, and Destiny


The Christian's Relation to It

by David Lipscomb (1913)

Should a Christian serve in the military?  What powers does God give the governments of this world over His people?  How are Christians to react when the government tried to induce them to violate God's word or their own conscience's?  This book covers these topics and more, striving to give the Biblical perspective on these questions.  

David Lipscomb was a kind-hearted preacher and educator who was among the earliest to proclaim "colored people" should be given respect and equal standing with the rest of mankind, especially in the church.
