The Christian Prince

Scroll through the annals of history, and as you stop along the way to look at a particular society's culture, you will see that if they were living according to God's rules things were probably going well, and if they were living according to their rules, things probably weren't going well. The reason the word "probably" is used in the preceding sentence is because God doesn't usually reward or punish us immediately for our decisions and actions. This means that sometimes a society that is living according to non-Christian principles may not be cursed immediately because of the blessings that have accrued from the obedience of previous generations. Sooner or later, however, disobedient societies will fill up God's cup of wrath and will receive His perfect justice.
