“I Once Was Blind”

“Politics According to the Bible” by Wayne Grudem

From “Politics According to the Bible” by Wayne Grudem:

“Biblical Support for Significant Christian Influence [over secular governments]
1. Old Testament examples
The Bible shows several examples of believers in God who influenced secular governments.
For instance, the Jewish prophet Daniel exercised a strong influence on the secular government in Babylon. Daniel said to Nebuchadnezzar,

‘Therefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable to you: break off your sins by practicing righteousness, and your iniquities by showing mercy to the oppressed, that there may perhaps be a lengthening of your prosperity.’ (Dan. 4:27).”
