Jacques Ellul – from Anarchy and Christianity

And the extraordinary thing is that according to [the Gospels] all powers, all power and glory of the kingdoms, all that has to do with politics and political authority, belongs to the devil. it has all been given to him and he gives it to whom he wills. Those who hold political power receive it from him and depend upon him…[Jesus] refuses the offer of power because the devil demands that he should fall down and worship him.

I love writing about books, theology, and the Kingdom of God. I also enjoy viewing my vocation through a biblical lens. It is here at Seeking A Kingdom that I aim to hash out my thoughts on all these things.
