What OWS Movement Doesn't Know Yet! - Andy *LINK*

Except God you mean...

God created government. The Law of Moses was a theocratic system in nature. The Ten Commandment Code was to be implemented civilly and spiritually (Ex. 20 ff.). Hence, instructions were given for the carrying out of capital punishment (Ex. 21: 12-17). However, the New Testament was not designed to be a theocracy. We read of the "higher powers" as being separate (Rom. 13: 1, more later). In the same verse Paul taught, "...For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God."

The Bible teaches submission to civil government. "Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the King, as supreme; or unto governors...," Peter taught (1 Pet. 2: 13, 14). Those who resist and disobey civil government are resisting God (Rom. 13: 2). The exception would be when government and God's word conflict (Acts 5: 29). Not only is obedience to government taught, but also honor is due. Observe Peter's teaching, "Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the King" (1 Pet. 2: 17). Keep in mind, the contemporary government was Rome and the King was the infamous Nero.

Have a nice day Andy and All
