The Polity, Explained

ARTICLE X - The prime directive of the Church.1

But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion2 over them, and they that are great exercise authority3 upon them. But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: Matthew 20:25-27

But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them. But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister: And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all. Mark 10:42

And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority4 upon them are called benefactors5. But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve. For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth. Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations. And I appoint6 unto you a kingdom7, as my Father hath appointed unto me; Luke 22:25

John 12:26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will [my] Father honour.

John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world8: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

1Any organization, government, or trust that violates the prime directive is not the Church. All corporeal and incorporeal hereditaments claimed for Jesus the Christ are entirely held in common for His purposes by those remaining faithful to His doctrines and ordinances in the Church. Violations would include but are not limited to the exercising of authority over the People as benefactors or rulers; or to encourage or cause by any direct act or act of omission the creation of such systems; or to facilitate by appointment or any other means the creation of such systems.

2 The words exercise dominion are from katakurieuo which means to bring under one's power, to subject one's self, to subdue, master , to hold in subjection, to be master of, exercise lordship over

3exercise authority is from katexousiazo meaning to exercise authority, wield power

4exercise authority upon is from exousiazo meaning to have power or authority, use power 1a) to be master of any one, exercise authority over one 1b) to be master of the body 1c) to be brought under the power of anyone

5Benefactor is from euergetes which is a title of honour, conferred on such as had done their country service, and upon princes, equivalent to Soter, Pater Patriae, pater patriae: The father of his country. (A title bestowed by the Roman Senate on Caesar Octavianus Augustus.)

6Appoint is from diatithemai meaning to arrange, dispose of, one's own affairs, to make a covenant, enter into a covenant,..

7Kingdom from basileia meaning royal power, kingship, dominion, rule 2) a kingdom, the territory subject to the rule of a king

8There are five different words in the New Testament that are translated into the single English word 'world'. aeon an unbroken age, oikoumene which commonly has to do with inhabited places, ‘ge’ is also translated world once but is translated earth about 188 times, and there is the word ‘erets’ from an unused root probably meaning to be firm; It is translated land 1543, earth 712. The word 'world' is from kosmos which means "an apt and harmonious arrangement or constitution, order, government." It probably came from the word komizo meaning "to care for, take care of, provide for" or "carry off what is one's own," which is what governments and the organized systems of men like Nimrod, Pharaoh, Caesar and social Democracies do.
Jesus and His Kingdom was not apart of that constitutional order of the Roman New World Order so therefore he had no need to appeal to the Romans as others had done.
