Discussion Questions

  1. God invented nations and what we call “the state” or the government. What is the purpose of the government? (See Romans 13:1-4.)

    1. Did America’s Founding Fathers use the Bible to establish laws?
  3. What does it mean to have liberty?
    1. Would we experience more liberty if we didn’t have to obey any laws?
  4. Ryan and Nelson were in the government of Kidsboro, but they found themselves in difficult situations—even doing the wrong things for what they hoped were good reasons. Is it ever right to do wrong, even if you mean well?
    1. What happens when a government behaves that way?
  5. What are the consequences when a government drifts away from the principles found in the Bible?
    1. Do you see that happening with your government?
    2. How?
  6. Should the government decide what schools teach?
    1. Should the government take care of the poor, or is that someone else’s responsibility?
    2. Is it the government’s job to decide if parents are being good parents?
