Obey the government...but not always

by Jeff Adams

Time and again I've heard fellow Christians use scripture, specifically Romans 13:1-7, to justify submission to the state, regardless of what the state is doing (at least whenever Republicans are in control). In addition, many quote Jesus, ... 'Give to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's,' as justification to accept whatever the government does. This is not just wrong-headed, but a misinterpretation of the Scriptures. As often happens, people take pieces of scripture out of context and don't look at them in conjunction with the scriptures as a whole. If one was to blindly, unthinkingly accept the referenced scripture above, as presented by advocates of total submission to the state, would you as a Christian follow laws that run counter to God's instructions? Would you follow an unjust law?
