Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works aredone in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.
As spiritual daughters of the Almighty, dominion keepers, and initiators of current history, it is our duty to study, understand, and record God‘s story of mankind. "Those who fail to study history are doomed to repeat it." Those who fail to study the religions, philosophies, power structures, literature, technologies, and art forms intertwined with history are doomed to misunderstand it. Those who fail to study history in the light of God's sovereignty are doomed to misrepresent His greatest servants and lead generations astray. Let us not fail to study history correctly and fulfill our duty.

How Should We Then Live? by Francis Schaeffer
"People have never carried out the biblical teaching perfectly. Nonetheless, wherever the biblical teaching has gone, even though it has always been marred by men, it not only has told of an open approach to God through the work of Christ, but also has brought peripheral results in society, including political institutions. Secondary results are produced by the preaching of the Gospel in both the arts and political affairs."
