The Kingdom of God is Not a Democracy

Chariots of Fire:

Reverend. J.D. Liddell: Sandy, the kingdom of God is not a democracy. The Lord never seeks reelection. There's no discussion, no deliberation, no referanda as to which road to take. There's one right, one wrong. One absolute ruler.
Sandy: A dictator, you mean?
Reverend J.D. Liddell: Aye, but a benign, loving dictator.

R.C. Sproul, Sr., Truths We Confess: A Layman's Guide to the Westminster Confession of Faith, Vol. 3, p. 6:

The kingdom of God does not exist by referendum. It is not a democracy. It is rooted and grounded in a principle of absolute monarchy, absolute sovereignty, where the Lord Almighty reigns. Americans resist that.
