Every Christian who questions the "government power" will run into those who claim that Romans 13 tells us that we must be good little citizens and obey every so called "law" they can find the time to write in a book. I'm sorry, but I STRONGLY disagree. The following link is what I feel a very accurate explanation of Romans 13 and how it's been so badly miss-interpreted over the years.http://lewrockwell.com/green-p/green-p20.1.html
Before I read this article, I always questioned Romans 13 and my biggest question was the "higher powers" reference. When you look at WHO these powers are supposed to be, it sure doesn't look like any "government" I've ever heard of. These powers and rulers are described as "ministers of God" and a "terror to evil". Sorry, but from my perspective, "governments" are if nothing else, EVIL.
It is commonly taught that Romans was written by Paul. Paul was himself a fugitive and later prisoner and convicted "felon" deserving of the death penalty (according to that "government"). How could it be that such a man would write that we should follow the evil desires and actions of people acting on behalf of a "government"? It has never made sense to me that we should blindly follow these EVIL men (the hearts of all men are evil) and help them do EVIL deeds because they have bigger guns than everyone else. That would mean that "might makes right" is the order of the day.
