The modern state is either openly or covertly godless.

It has legalized abortion and homosexuality, and increasingly, euthanasia.

“Cesar’s household,” in Philippians 4:22, may refer to cabinet-rank officials. Romans 16:23 mentions Erastus the chamberlain of the city.”

The early church faced the issue of lordship or sovereignty. The church's response was, "Jesus Christ is Lord" (Phil. 2:9-11), not Caesar. For Christians, theocracy must be the normal pattern of all government, because God alone is Lord or sovereign. It is basic to the madness of our time, and of all apostate history, to assert the sovereignty of man or of the state (Gen. 3:5).
