But, it leaves no doubt that Satan is the supranatural agent by whom sin and evil enter into God's creation, man included. However, the Bible is unequivocal about certain facts of sin in relation to mankind: Man is a uniquely created being. Man is a peculiar being, apart from all other creation, a creature in the image of God, an intelligent, volitional, emotional personality, perfectly related to God and endowed with capacities and authorities which defy our present comprehension, definition and realization.
We summarize these basic theological concepts and presuppositions of Christ by pointing to His focal point of proclamation, central revelation, unique self-identification, supreme purpose, declaration as final judge, and the Great Commission. THE FOCAL POINT OF CHRIST'S PROCLAMATION - THE KINGDOM OF GOD Mark summarizes the proclamation of Jesus Christ in these words: "Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, the time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel" (1:14-15).
It may be well to think of the kingdom of God in qualitative and quantitative terms. Qualitatively we may consider it as threefold: a. The rule of God in the heart of man. The kingdom of God is within you. It is immediate and actual. As such it is moral, not na tionalistic; it is spiritual, not materialistic; it is actual, not idealistic (that is, it is present and not totally futuristic). b. The rule of God in the church. Neither God nor Christ is ever spoken of as the King of the church. Christ is the Lord of the church and this is but a Roman modification of the king or rulership concept.
