Theology Doesn’t Begin And End With Romans 13

Theology doesn’t begin and end with Romans 13

Tower_of_Babel_cropped_squareOn Easter Sunday, I joined a Facebook thread where the role of government and Romans 13 were discussed. A number of points about the Christian’s relation to government were aired, including citations of Leo Tolstoy, and a major theme was the idea of Christian anarchism. When this happens, of course, Romans 13 is invariably brought to the table. It seems to me, though, that this is not a good starting point for discussion of statism in the Bible.

The Christian Libertarian FAQ is having some issues

In the meantime, I’m going to copy-paste the entire FAQ into this post so that it is at least still available for reading – and for asking further questions. I am hopeful that this problem can be solved in just a few days.

Also, feel free to treat this as a general discussion post – go to town with your own questions and topics. I’d love to hear what is on your mind!
