No King But Christ | Anno Domini 2023

“SIR RICHARD SUTTON…from the Governor of America to the Board of Trade, shewing… If you ask an American who is his master, he will tell you he has none, nor any Governor but Jesus Christ.”

– The British Parliamentary Records from April 22, 1774

Masters and kings are both ancient titles. However, they are not archaic realities. Both titles reflect something very modern.

That modern-yet-ancient concept is this: centralized power.

In our age, the real kings are not monarchs. They wear no crowns. They have a different form. They come in the form of tinpot governors, like New Mexico’s Lujan Grisham forbidding the carrying of guns. They come in the form of enormous Federal Governments debasing our currency. They come in the form of the United Nations imposing society-shattering “climate agendas.”

Centralized power abounds. When power centralizes, it enables men to do far greater evil with far greater speed.

In decentralized government, an evil statesman often has trouble getting significant traction to set the order off course. In centralized government, one evil man can enslave a nation.

Additionally, centralized governments pull more authority to themselves without accountability. America’s Federal Government now has more regulations than any one person can track. This is convenient for the higher-ups: the more laws there are, the easier it is to take down any person the central planners find obstructive.

Oppressive taxation also increases under centralization, because less representation means fewer people need to worry about upsetting their constituents.

Centralized power magnifies the evils of fallen man’s heart. This is what kingship does with evil men.

And yet, we do have one king. One man worthy of centralized authority and power. That man is Christ.

“And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.’” 

– Matthew 28:18

Because he is righteous, Christ’s kingship is glorious. It is Christ’s authority, in fact, that grants governments any right to punish evildoers. His Word tells them what punishments are just. His Word also tells us how to recognize counterfeit government. Wannabe kings.

Christ tells us to give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, but not to give to Caesar whatever he desires. That is not Caesar’s right. He is not Lord. There is no king but Christ.

Each December, we put forward that motto to encourage you that concentrated and complete authority is held by Christ, and not government, and Free Men ought to remind officials of that fact. 

Not everyone with a badge and a gun deserves your obedience; be prepared to resist tyrants when they demand what is not theirs. Christ will vindicate you on Judgment Day, when he has come to claim what is his.

"And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name is written, KING OF KING AND LORD OF LORDS."

– Revelation 19:15-16
