When God's Kingship is Unacknowledged

"When God's kingship is unacknowledged, when his law is ignored, when the morality that he advocates is circumvented, incredible, appalling disasters are the outcome. When rash oaths in his name are used to manipulate and abuse people, when leaders use the ends to justify the means, when God doesn't exist in the lives of his people, the consequences are outrageously appalling."

[K. Lawson Younger, Jr. on Judges 19-21, NIV Life Application Commentary on Judges/Ruth, pg.386]
