    No.  Nothing democratic about the Lord God.  You don't get to vote.  He is TRUTH and your way doesn't count.  He created you to please Him as Revelation 4:11 says you were created for His pleasure.  So, are you trying to please God?  Or are you trying to please yourself?  Makes quite a division doesn't it.  God even says He will bring you down to a Valley of Decision and you will choose either His Ways or man's ways, but He clearly tells you that He is the Way, the Truth and the Life.  God didn't come down in human flesh as Jesus the Christ and obey His law that without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin.  He became the last unblemished, perfect sacrifice for mankind and there is no other.  You accept Jesus that won back eternal life for you, or you reject Jesus and be doomed to hell.

    Because He is the eternal sovereign ruler of all the universe.

    Democracy is not the best form of governance.  No human created institution is.

    If you had never been created but created everything in this universe and all the angels too, wouldn't you expect your creatures to acknowledge you as their creator? Would that not give you sovereign rights unequal to any authority delegated to mere creatures? The sovereignty of God trumps all man-made ideas about government because of who he is - God!

    That's why king David said in the Bible, "Thine, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all. Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might." 1 Chronicles 29:11-12

  • In ancient days the metaphor went even further than that. Yahweh was considered the true king of Israel who the earthly king or priests spoke for. He demanded a tithing, a 10% of earnings for those living in Israel (this was a common practice for kings to do for foreigners renting land in the king's realm.) He also commanded a host of divine warriors to go to battle for Israel. In regards to the ten commandments, the scene played out typically how treaties between kings and vassal states did. It starts with what the king did for the vassal before going into the rules demanded of the king, and both parties recieved a copy of it. In almost everyway except physically being there, the Israelites considered yahweh their king, and that they were foreigners in his land who could evict them whenever he wished.

    we'll assuming you're speaking of the Christian god, in the Bible they often say about their god having reign over such things like the land as a king would do, a quote of context taken from the bible is here; "The LORD will reign for ever and ever." (Exodus 15:18). Which in that passage god himself reveals himself to the nation of Egypt as their king. so from the story of Moses it appears that god being referred to as "king" may have been a self proclaimed title he used to state his purpose.
