Kingdom of God

>My first allegiance is not to a flag, a country, or a man

Derek Webb is getting a lot of play in my ipod lately. I think he offers a welcome relief from the Christian Right and Christian Left that both confuse the state, kingdom and church. To those who believe the kingdom advances only by electing pro-life candidates, and those that believe the kingdom job of helping the poor and the widow is voting Democratic once every four years, know you do nothing to advance the kingdom. Your allegiances are divided. Repent.:

A King & A Kingdom by Derek Webb (MP3 remix here)

Who’s your brother, who’s your sister?
You just walked passed him
i think you missed her.
As we’re all migrating to the place where our father lives
’cause we married in to a family of immigrants.

My first allegiance is not to a flag, a country, or a man
My first allegiance is not to democracy or blood
It’s to a King & a Kingdom

There are two great lies that i’ve heard:
“The day you eat of the fruit of that tree, you will not surely die”
and that Jesus Christ was a white, middle-class Republican
and if you wanna be saved you have to learn to be like Him

My first allegiance is not to a flag, a country, or a man
My first allegiance is not to democracy or blood
It’s to a King & a Kingdom

But nothing unifies like a common enemy
and we’ve got one, sure as hell
but he may be living in your house
he may be raising up your kids
he may be sleeping with your wife
oh no, he may not look like you think

  1. >Dude, I was listening to this album ALL day yesterday! Great stuff. Anywho, the notion that the Kingdom is not expanded through government is one of the key things I was thinking when I wrote my “Moment of Truth” post a couple of days ago. I truly pray that conservative Christians won’t see their only role for the next four years as being a thorn in President Obama’s side, biding time until we can try to get our choice back into the White House. God’s mission to advance His kingdom hasn’t changed, nor has His choice of instrument to bring that about!
