Just reading the etymology of the word KING:
anciently Konning, means Ken-ning (or CUNNING), which is the same thing....
Also, Kings claim divine right or authority from God all the time, because who would ever vote for them?
When I saw King Peter on THE PROPHET OF LOVE documentary my first impression was "what a silly simpleton, so naive and optimistic in a wicked world, how did I ever let him and his sycophants rule my thoughts and life?"
But maybe Peter is more cunning than any of us can imagine. Who knows? Just reading someone's purported writings isn't really enough information to evaluate and on the documentary his apparent callow and gullible demeanor was disturbing. But when I was in the cult I never doubted or questioned my instincts, I considered them evil I guess, earthy--of the devil.
The Family will say having a King and Queen is all the Lord's doing--and why not?
But that idea just covers a multitude of sins, in my opinion.
What's your opinion?
