    Is the United Nations a government and ordained by God? I would like to hear from others on this.

    I do not know, but I would like an answer on this one. So, I will reserve my vote for a later date.

    I don't know if it is or isn't. But I'm going to start to look into the matter here.

    <a href="http://www.un.org/aboutun/charter/" target="_blank">UN Charter
    </a>

    Then I'll hit the search engines for all the newspaper articles I can find. To learn some background and get some names to check out.

    Then look into it's policies and how they have been carried out.

    Is it possible that there is such a thing as a government not ordained by God? Does not God control the kings of the earth? I know that they set themselves against him, but is God not still sovereign?

    I believe it is a government in nature and action. It is not "ordained" because it does not follow the Law of God.

    Thanks -------Bart

    [​IMG] I agree, Bart. The UN does not pass the test of Romans 13 by any stretch.
