    It also baffles me when people today think it a wise idea to closely model a physical nation on OT Israel. There is no longer any physical nation that comprises "the people of God," and we should not lament that fact. As someone with Pentecostal-Charismatic, Arminian, and Egalitarian beliefs, I can just imagine what life would be like under a John MacArthur monarchy!

    Foolish. Rebel against will of God, then punishment.

    I think we all crave the rule of a righteous King, it is a vestige of the image of God in us.

    It seems fairly evident to me that Scripture tends to reserve licit sex for marriage.

    Except isn't a human king usurping God? After all in God's Kingdom, HE is King, not some human being. So I would argue that setting up a human kingdom is in opposition to God. Which is why God didn't want the Israelites to have a kind. HE was their king.
