Romans 13 and Obeying the Government–Libertarian Christian Institute

“Second, I continue to be puzzled that some Christians stumble over this. Only a madman would say that obeying the government in Romans 13 is absolute. Even the most diehard Christian apologist for the state, its military, and its wars would never think of saying such a thing. Although the way some Christians repeat the ‘obey the powers that be’ mantra may make one think they would slit their own mothers’ throats if the state told them to do so, they wouldn’t do it no matter how they were threatened by the state. If government agents came to them and said, “Here, put on this uniform, take this gun, and go shoot your neighbor,” they would likewise refuse and suffer the consequences. No Christian is going to make his wife get an abortion because the government says he has too many children. No Christian is going to accept every government pronouncement, support every government program, or blindly follow whatever the president or the government says – even when the Republicans are in control. Any admonition in Scripture to obey the government is tempered by command toobey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29) and the sixth commandment ‘Thou shalt not kill‘ (Exodus 20:13), which is repeated in Romans 13:9.”
