1 Peter 2:9

We get no sense from 1 Peter that the church should strive to regulate all domains of social life and reshape society in the image of the heavenly Jerusalem…[Peter’s community] did not wish to impose itself or the kingdom of God on the world, but to live in faithfulness to God and to the values of God’s kingdom, inviting others to do the same. It had no desire to do for others what they did not want done for them. They had no covert totalitarian agenda. Rather, the community was to live an alternative way of life in the present social setting, transforming it, as it could, from within. In any case, the community did not seek to exert social or political pressure, but to give public witness to a new way of life.”
