Many Christians today feel that America is turning its back on God. Recent social issues have continually moved in the direction opposite of traditional Christian values. Most blame these developments on their leaders, hoping that if only the right person is elected this movement away from God will cease and we will return to the fundamental values from which this country has been founded. However, the problem is t with any of our leaders. The problem lies with the very form of government in which this country is founded: democracy. America is t a Christian country and it never was one, simply because of the government system that runs it. Democracy despite its near universal praise in the the western world by both secular and Christian parties is an institution that is fundamentally incompatible with the tenants of Christianity. An idea originally developed by the pagan Greeks, democracy at its core promotes ideas antithetical to the Christian values of humbleness, obedience and piety. The purpose of this work is to shed light on the ways democracy is t sanctioned by the Bible and how it ultimately promotes behavior that is t proscribed by God.
