"Or does a Christian, who gives his highest alleigance to a heavenly King, or anyone who gives an ultimate alleigance to a higher natural law make a poor citizen of a state?"

Yes.

"I also think of the Apostle Paul who was a Christian, a citizen of Israel, and a citizen of Rome. :)"

I have always felt Paul placing faith in something other than God by declaring himself to be a Roman thereby seeking to benefit from protection in Roman law in order to prevent being beaten ... was the beginning of the end for Paul. Quite frankly I don't see any difference of substance between Paul claiming to be a Roman citizen for protection and that OT story about some rebellious people demanding the Lord be replaced by a king for protection.
