Alexander Campbell was a patriotic, naturalized U.S. citizen who encouraged exercising the right to vote to bring social change and promote Christian values. At the same time, he argued against any attempt to legislate Christian practice or establish a theocracy, insisting Christianity cannot be imposed on those who have not subjected themselves to Christ. This essay explores Campbell’s philosophy of government and demonstrates his overarching concern was the freedom of and from religion as he awaited the reign of King Jesus.
