God in his infinite wisdom and grace instituted three human institutions to serve mankind, the family, human government and the Church. We have been tasked with the responsibility of stewardship of all three. The family, to be fruitful and multiply, tend creation and raise children in the admonition of the Lord (Genesis 1:28, 2:18, 24, Proverbs 22:6). Human government, to provide order to society, reward good and punish evil (Romans 13:1-4). The Church, to be the living organism that edifies spiritual growth for proper stewardship while simultaneously spreading God’s Word (Matthew 16:18, Mark 16:15). You read the second institution correctly, human government is to foster goodness and be a terror to evil!
