Martin Bucer to Obama

"It would seem fitting to write for Your Majesty a little about the fuller acceptance and reestablishment of the Kingdom of Christ in your realm. Thus it may be better understood how salutary and necessary it is both for Your Majesty and all classes of men in his realm, thoughtfully, consistently, carefully, and tenaciously to work toward this goal, that Christ's Kingdom may as fully as possible be accepted and hold sway over us." (Bucer, De Regno Christi, 175-176)

I think Obama understands what few prominent Christians seem to get, that being the kingdom of Christ transcends all governments and is more relevant and lasting. This kingdom alone gives strength and purpose to the passing dominions.
