Any theory that overlooks the hand of God in government is untenable. The same is true of any of the acceptable theories, if they are viewed as excluding the consideration of God. A contract between men, for example, can never overlook the aim of God. We must remember, however, that though civil government is ordained by God, it did not come immediately from Him, but came, in one manner or another, through the people.
