    Is having a king or queen a sin?

  10. Niko Varano

    Having a queen or king is not a sin. In 1 Samuel 8, the Israelites asked for a king because the theocracy was corrupted and they wanted to be like the nations around. The former reason is an accurate reason to have a king. Where the Israelites went wrong is that they put their trust in a man king instead of putting their trust in God. This could be translated as a form of idolatry (Exodus 20:2) because they served the human king and not the king of the universe.
