For Christians who say they love the Lord and love their country, would you be sadden to have to live under a Theocracy? I find most people love being under a democracy, where everybody has a voice. Would some of you struggle with a rule from God only?

Why do you believe you know the Bible is God speaking and not just some guys?

Because he authenticated it with miraculous signs and wonders.

Did you know that the purpose of the Ten Commandments was to establish the ancient nation of Israel, not the nation of the United States? Did you know that the purpose of the First Commandment was to declare which god among many (Elohim) was to be worshipped by the nation of Israel?

I'm taking the account of an inspired collection of books, and the historical accounts of God working over the course of millenia.

Living under a Christian theocracy will happen in the next dispensation of the ages , as this will happen only when the spirit of the antichrist and the false prophet and the beast and the followers are removed out of the earth , which is after the next coming of Jesus ....... ..... God did have a theocracy as He was king of Israel from Moses to King David and King Saul....... Actually this can only happen when People love God

First of all, I find the modern-day definition of theocracy is rule by clergy or clergy class.
That is a far cry from the theocracy of the Constitution of the Mosaic Law.
And a far cry from the theocracy of Daniel 2:44.
When Adam broke God's Law, in effect Adam was taking the theocratic law out of God's hands and put the law into man's hands.
Thus, Adam set up People Rule as being superior to God Rule.
A democracy is government by man. Man's history has proven that rule by man can't bring Peace to Earth.
That is why God will have Jesus step in to usher in global Peace on Earth among persons of goodwill.
Jesus, as king of God's kingdom for a thousand years, covers all countries and nations.
Only God Rule under Christ can bring ' healing ' to earth's nations as per Revelation 22:2
That is why we are all invited to pray the invitation for Jesus to come ! - Revelation 22:20
Come and bring Peace on Earth under God's theocratic kingdom governed by King Christ Jesus for 1,000 years. - 1st Corinthians 15:24-26
