Proof that the Bible is Anti government.

Judaism and Christianity are, at their cores, subversive, anti-government religions. This is strongly reflected in the holy books of these religions, a.k.a. the Bible.

So, I’m going to provide a quick cheat sheet for biblical anarchy – a list of passages that make a clear case: The God of the Bible has nothing to do with the governments of Earth and, in fact, considers them evil.

This list may offend people. But their anger doesn’t make it any less true.

The List:

Starting with the Hebrew Scriptures, then moving into the Greek, here are the relevant passages:

In Exodus 1, Hebrew women openly defied the king of Egypt:

“And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives… when ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them upon the stools, if it be a son, then ye shall kill him; but if it be a daughter, then she shall live. But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive.”

Religion and government have both fought for control over

the populations for centuries. Most of the time it was EITHER the church OR the government who were in control. In more recent times they have kind of made a truce and accepted the fact that both of the scams work better if they work together.

Anyone that has taken the time to research the orgins of governemt and the history of money will have come accross the orgins of religion and logical explainations for all the supernatural claims made by the bible and organized religions.

How anyone could "take the red pill" and still be blinded to the absurdity of god and the bible is beyond me.

Why do people insist on having an explanation for the unexplainable? Just because we don't know (for sure) how humans came into exsistance and what happens when we die, WHY OH WHY do so many people accept the outlandish stories provided to them by people who have always had one goal...to be able to control them?

Bizzare.

Except for Romans 13:1-7

Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.

This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.

Audio related to this subject for Christians (and the curious)

My church just hosted a conference that dealt somewhat with this topic. There are 2 audio links here that I would recommend Christians here listen to. One by Doug Wilson and one by Stephen Baker. Scroll down and click on the audio or save it for later:

This will put some perspective on how, of course God is not surprised by earthly authorities and he, of course, works through them and Christians are not to blindly follow leaders that defy Truth.

I plan on reading...

the book referenced in the video clip shared by goldenequity below.

The "obey authority" blank check interpretation of Romans 13 has always seemed to oppose the scarlet thread of truth that extends throughout the Bible in regard to God being the focus rather than man or government ruled by men.

Sorry...deleted double post. Herpderp

You are not reading that

You are not reading that correctly. Please look up Chuck Baldwin's essay on Romans chapter 13. It is the total opposite of what you are saying.

To reiterate jb.kibs comment in pictoral

so maybe it helps to sink in.

Thank you for putting this together, it is a great blessing.

seems to be some disagreement here from my perspective...

Can't we just throw this pos book out and not reference is anymore? It seems to me to be the more logical act than trying to make sense of the ramblings of 100 different mad men from a time long past.

ah...

the old Romans 13/"Let everyone be subject.. / aka the "Divine Right of Kings" (argued since the Middle Ages)... no more, Christians are waking up.

Thanks, goldenequity...

I just found the next book that I'm going to read. Looks interesting!

No

Only individuals can throw things and reference things. "We" cannot. *You* can.

If *you* would like to throw it away and not reference it, please do so.

*You* shouldn't be reading someone else's mail anyway. One should not expect that you would understand it.

most of the stories in the bible are about

casting off the false authority of mankind and giving yourself only to God, you can't serve two masters, that is the point. if you belong to God you cannot belong to a "state" or anyone else.

Acts 5:29
We must obey God rather than man.

I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.

right track...

I think there's a little more to it than that, but the OP is not wrong.

good stuff

But one need look no further than the ten commandments to see that the word of God is anti-government. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Whose laws do we obey? God's or man's? Thou shalt create no graven images. A citizen is a fine example of a graven image. Are we citizens? Thou shalt not kill. Our governments claim the justified right to kill on our behalf and we endorse it, do we not? Before you say you don't endorse it, do you vote? on down the list, we (by way of our governments) violate every commandment, even though as individuals we may honor most of them. 1 and 2 are real hard to honor in today's system, by design.
These questions are not directed at any one person in particular, just general questions.

from the article, pins down nicely "cowardly haters"

The hard truth is that people want to align God with government, because they want an easy way out. They don’t want to suffer for righteousness’s sake.

Which of the prophets weren’t abused? Which righteous man didn’t suffer for his righteousness? Cowardly believers are simply trying to avoid this.

Here are a few of Jesus’ comments on the subject:

You shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake. (Mark 13:13)
You are blessed when men hate you, when they exclude you and revile you, and cast out your name as evil, on account of me… Their fathers did the same to the prophets. (Luke 6:22-23)
If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you. (John 15:20)

Trippy.... Sierra

I was just over in another post, "Rand Paul: 'I wouldn't question' Israel", mentioning this very subject.

Serendipity. :)
