I think thats ultimately because the Human King can not fully reflect Christ....and how damaged is the world because Human Kings have acted in ways which are contrary to their sacred annointing?
Would we even be having this discussion, if King George had done his duty concerning the collonies?
But there is evidences in the Scriptures for this method of politics being carried out correctly...and to the best of my knowledge there is no evidence of that being the case for a Constitution....Certainly not a Constitution that stands APART from the Governing body...and certainly not one that claims to be absolute...EXCEPT FOR...The Old Testament Law
