Elizabeth has been reigning for decades as the Queen of England.
She is shown great respect.
Her portrait even appears on the money of Canada.
She doesn’t actually run Canada or even England. She is what we call a figurehead: a person who holds an important title or office yet executes little actual power
Jesus has been reigning as King of kings for centuries.
He is shown mild respect.
His portrait appears on billboards and even in homes. Family bookstores sell many items for decorating our homes in his honor.
Does he run your life?
Or is he a figurehead?
Can you tell the difference?
