In a democracy, governments operate by the will and vote of the people making every vote and opinion important, resulting in the majority ruling. The Holy Bible teaches us about a Kingdom .   The Kingdom of God is Divine and is utterly beyond any human effort to affect it. That people confuse political action with the Kingdom of God is itself an artifact of the modern project. That project is, to a great extent, a Christian heresy.   Democracy vs the Kingdom of God - Two opposing Systems In every generation since the beginning of time, man has always dreamt of a paradise on earth. This dream for the ideal has been the driving force behind the motivation, inspiration and development of all philosophical ideas and government systems in all cultures worldwide and at all times.

  There are five books that have greatly shaped my understanding of the kingdom of God. These are my top-five and the books that I recommend to pastors, students, and anyone interested in the theology of the kingdom. #5 – The Gospel of the Kingdom: Scriptural Studies in the Kingdom of God, by George Eldon Ladd. Yes, Ladd is a prominent figure. The Government of God and Democracy. Now, democracy is the best form of civil government as we know it because of its basic tenets and because of the checks and balances of the system. It is built on the premise and principle of the "majority rule" and the protection of individuals rights. 4. What is God’s Kingdom, and who is its King? 4 Jehovah set up a heavenly government and chose Jesus to be its King. The Bible calls this government God’s Kingdom. Jesus is “the King of those who rule as kings and Lord of those who rule as lords.” (1 Timothy ) Jesus is able to do more good than any human ruler ever could, and he is more powerful than all human rulers .   Democracy is a kind of kingdom of God on earth, and the United States has been chosen by God for spreading democracy everywhere. Those in the Anabaptist-Mennonite tradition tend to be skeptical of this view. We do not identify any national government with the kingdom of God.
