Comment: I don't go by Rothbard,

(See in situ)


I don't go by Rothbard,

I go by the Holy Bible.

The biblical qualifications for men who would fulfill the office of judge are "select capable men from all the people--men who fear God and hate dishonest gain--and appoint them as officials over thousands, hundreds, fifties, and tens. Have them serve as judges for the people at all times...." Exodus 18:21, 22

The Bible explicitly says elsewhere that Almighty God instituted human government to punish evil-doers and to reward the righteous.
