Christian pastors are erroneously reviving the divine-right-of-kings argument, which created some of the most horrific human affairs in history. They, like grandfather of Communism Georg Hegel, argue that government is Divinely sanctioned to do anything it pleases and that God requires people to submit regardless of God’s standards of justice.
This argument has been used by virtually every tyrant since the first century, including Adolf Hitler. Romans 13: The True Meaning of Submission shows with overwhelming evidence that submission to government is limited and that the obey-government-no-matter-what argument is false! It discusses sound rules of interpretation and construction, incorporates biblical reasoning, and uses hundreds of Scriptural proofs for its conclusions.
Perhaps more than any other resource, Romans 13: The True Meaning of Submission will help you achieve a much greater and deeper understanding of and appreciation for the Biblical teaching regarding a person’s duty of submission and relationship towards government. There is hardly a subject today more needed in political, philosophical, and theological studies.
