"Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God."[1]

Christian Theocracy is a culturally right-wing ideology occupying the upper center section of the Authoritarian scale of the political compass, depending on the type of Christianity (Calvinists on the far right, Catholics center left, etc.). It believes that a strong, Christian government is necessary for the salvation of mankind. They do not want a separation of church and state, moderates believe in living according to the Ten Commandments along with the teachings of Jesus Christ while radicals might go as far as crusading against non-Christians.


There were numerous states in history that adopted Christianity as their state religion. The first state to legally declare Christianity it's state religion would be Armenia, under King Tiridates III (298-330 C.E./A.D.). Later, in the year 380 under Emperor Theodosius I, the Edict of Thessalonica would make Christianity the state religion of the Roman Empire, influencing all European history to come.

The New Testament gives no guidelines for governing a nation, but the Old Testament does describe the existance of theocracies under men such as Moses, Joshua, and King Josiah (for more information, see Jewish Theocracy § History). On another related note, the New Testament does describe the concept of governments (regardless of them being Christian) as appointed by God. Paul the Apostle wrote that "... there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God" (Romans 13:1, NKJV). This, along with the Old Testament, is the scriptural foundation for a theocracy in Christianity.

For more information on the histories from the perspective of specific denominations, see the "History" sections of:



Chalcedonian Christianity is the umbrella term for the Christian groups that accepted the Council of Chalcedon in 451 AND the Council of Nicea in 325, the common term for what can be considered pre-schismatic Christianity from which both Catholicism and Orthodoxy originate. On the council it was decided that the nature of Christ is dual, both human and divine: Dyophysitism. It encompasses modern Catholicism and Orthodoxy, as well as the protestant denominations that recognize the two councils. In some ways, it can also be a term that refers to a potential reunion of Catholic and Orthodox churches back into a single Church, a potentially pejorative term: Cathodoxy, that some may embrace as a Christian identity as opposed to just Catholicism and/or Orthodoxy.


Catholicism is a variant of Christianity revolving around the Pope, a tradition Catholics believe Jesus Christ established when he appointed St. Peter as The Head of The Apostles, and The general Hierarchy of The Catholic Church. It is practiced mainly in Italy, France, Poland, , and Spain.

Orthodox Christianity

Orthodox Christianity is a variant of Christianity revolving around the Eastern Orthodox Church. It is practiced mainly in Greece and Russia.


Protestantism is a variant of Christianity revolving around the justification of God only, holding The Bible in regard as The highest form of Christianity, and opposition to hierarchical institutions of Christianity such as the Pope. It is practiced mainly in anglophone nations like the United States and the United Kingdom.


Adamites were a historical variant of Christian Theocracy based in North Africa with the ideas of Naturism. It was practiced mainly in the territories of modern-day Algeria, and they never wore clothes.


Mormonism, also known as The 'Latter-Day Saints movement' is a restorationist Christian denomination that follows the story of Jesus Christ himself coming in contact with a forgotten Native American Hebrew society, a new non-trinitarian introduction to the afterlife, Heaven, and God, and a greater emphasizes on the connection between Humanity and God presented by The Book of Mormon, which Mormons believe is a continuation of The Bible. It is the historical religion of The U.S. state of Utah and various colonies throughout Mexico.

Messianic Judaism

Messianic Judaism is a syncretic religion that combines teachings from both Christianity and Judaism, it teachings traditional Jewish theory with the concept of salvation through faith in Jesus

Jehovah's Witnesses

Jehovah's Witnesses is a restorations Christian denomination that follows one God known as 'Jehovah' who is the creator and sovereign ruler of The Universe, and that Jesus is The son of God, but not apart of the trinity.


Catharism, also known as 'Albigensianism' is a Gnostic Christian sect native to Southern France. Cathars believe in two powerful deities, a good God who created the spiritual realm and an evil God who created the material World. In reincarnation, the human soul was an immortal spirit trapped in the physical body and would be continually reborn until it completely renounced the material world and escaped the cycle of rebirth. Equality between men and women, vegetarianism and celibacy.

Stylistic Notes

  • Can be holding a cross or Eucharist materials such as bread and wine.
  • Is NEVER late for Bible study club meetings.
