Thesis 77: Political Authority and Kingdom Citizenship

Christians are not to exercise authority, lordship, or the force of coercion over others,[1] nor seek positions of power in the polis;[2] our citizenship is in heaven.[3]

1. Mark 10:42-45
2. Revelation 18:4
3. Philippians 3:20

What is an "Archist"
The actions described in note 1 are rooted in violence. They violate God's commandments, such as The Eighth Commandment and the Sixth Commandment.

The polis is the institutionalization of disobedience to God's commandments.
