Does Shaul/Paul advocate for blind submission to government authority? The first seven verses of Romans 13 have been used and abused by the Institutional Church to establish religio-political authoritarian positions. Scripture advocates for behavior that is lawful to Yahuwah, refuting tyranny that is a terror to good works.

– Chapter 13 • Part 1 –

The first seven verses of Romans Chapter 13 have been some of the most misused and abused verses by clergymen and governments alike – the false teaching of total submission to all government authority.

So first off lets tackle the false idea of total submission to government authority;  this has lead to the loss of more Christian/believers dominion/territory in the religio-polictical landscape than any other false doctrine of man.…….(explain).

Matthew 15:7 Hypocrites! Rightly did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying, ‘This people honors Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me.:9  And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’”

The ethics of First Century Roman taxation are likely the context (vs 6-7), and a prior incident that had erupted in ancient Rome is probably guiding Paul’s instruction here.

The Roman believers had been swayed by their fellow citizens to a resistance to paying taxes to an increasingly predatory Roman government – more legislation, less freedom – all done in the name of ‘peace and freedom.’

In Nero’s early years, he considered abolishing indirect taxes as opposed to direct tax paid as tribute by a conquered nation.

Some scholars believe that it’s not actually the Roman government that’s in view here, but instead submission of the non Jewish, Greek and Roman believers to Jewish religious authority.

Judeo-Christianity is a rotting limb from the Talmudic tree that infiltrated Christianity during the 20th century;  and has produced the fruit of todays religio-politics; which has in turn; resulted in the blind wonderment to everything Israel, and the resulting unquestioning adherence to a growing tide of governmental rule funded from this Talmudic tree.

Over the next few weeks we’re going to look in depth into Romans 13 and investigate the Scriptural validity to “total submission to government”, we’re going to investigate the Scriptural validity into the “Patriot Movement” – or “Constitutionalist’s Movement”, we’re going to find out how יהוה has called us to interact and react with our host nations governing powers.

Can we follow the instruction of Yahuwah and obey the government? All established government is based upon a theocracy, but the elohim being served is not always Yahuwah. As believers in a world that does not value righteousness, we must remain true to Yah, but we must walk a path of maturity, temperance, and self-control, empowered by the Ruach ha’Kodesh/Holy Spirit.
