A reply to GB Shaw quote post

The post:

Revolutions have never lightened the burden of tyranny:
they have only shifted it to another shoulder
~ George Bernard Shaw

My comment:

GBS speaks from the perspective of the human and in that context speaks more truly than is understood during the time of revolution. However, when governed by God, man needs no other government. Man (mankind, male and female) is free to obey the 2 great commandments. He will naturally and rightly love his neighbor as himself as he loves himself, not as self-made but as God's image and likeness.

Obeying the second proves man's obedience to the first:" love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might" Deut 6:5 and taught by Jesus.*

Human government attempts to pattern the divine but will never successfully challenge its preeminence. The human can express but cannot govern the divine.
* see Matt 22:37, Mark 12:30, Luke 10:27
