13 All of you must obey the government rulers. Everyone who rules was given the power to rule by God. And all those who rule now were given that power by God. 2 So anyone who is against the government is really against something God has commanded. Those who are against the government bring punishment on themselves.3 People who do right don’t have to fear the rulers. But those who do wrong must fear them. Do you want to be free from fearing them? Then do only what is right, and they will praise you.
4 Rulers are God’s servants to help you. But if you do wrong, you have reason to be afraid. They have the power to punish, and they will use it. They are God’s servants to punish those who do wrong. 5 So you must obey the government, not just because you might be punished, but because you know it is the right thing to do.
6 And this is why you pay taxes too. Those rulers are working for God, and they give all their time to the work of ruling. 7 Give everyone what you owe them. If you owe them any kind of tax, then pay it. Show respect to those you should respect. And show honor to those you should honor.
That's more the Bible supports traditional royal and imperial structures, which duh.
This. Sage for slide thread.
Exactly, so what if we had a monarch socialist king that cared for the nation similar to hitler?
Fuck off with the D&C.
CDIF already here!! Looool!
It advocates for a corrupt inner party church oligarchy with absolute control over society and peoples' thoughts, appointed by and representing the people God, and contends that the pursuit of profit is bourgeois exploitation sinful distraction from heavenly virtue. Sounds like marxism all right.
I wasn't aware the letters of Paul is the only part of the Bible.
Friendly reminder that those translations were written all simple like so that mouth breathers like you aren't confused by those ye olde words. Somehow I'm still surprised by how far fedoras are able to intentionally miss the point for the sake of appearing right. Yes, you're supposed to respect your government and the rulers put in place but nevermind that this was written while under fucking Nero. If the authoritative entity in place has laws that causes one to sin, disobey God, contradict or violate ones Godly conscious or, especially, uses it's power to circumvent rights given to its citizens as given by the law, it isn't to be respected. That's the great thing about being an American. Not only does the law of the constitution give us inalienable rights, but it encourages us to respect no government after it that doesn't obey it's own laws put in place, even going so far as giving us a lawful right to overthrow it and install a new one if need be as a footnote.
The united states was founded upon rebellion against a legitimate monarchy that ruled based on the principles of God despite being a protestant king, the american colonial terrorists like george washington didnt seem to respect the government.

Christ wasn’t a socialist. He was a religious radical. He advocated charity by the individual. He did not want a complex temporal power structure established to tax people at gunpoint to subsidize poverty. Santa Claus, likewise, rewards virtue with toys and evil with coal. If anything, what he represents is a purely capitalistic idea–regardless of background, race, creed, etc., by virtuous and diligent behavior one will be rewarded materially. Whereas slothfulness and evil reaps nothing of value. A Wonderful Life is about valuing family, not about establishing a top-down economy. A Christmas Carol isn’t about a capitalist who turns into a socialist. It’s about a capitalist who overcomes the bitterness of his childhood and learns to value his family and his friendships more than his business. He doesn’t stop being a capitalist; he still solves all of his problems with money. The Grinch Who Stole Christmas is about a terrorist who realizes that his diagnosis of capitalist society as being corrupt and materialistic was wrong. He realizes that though the society acknowledges capitalistic values, it also has a spiritual core independent of that system. His realization that the two can exist in harmony allows him to come to terms with his own bitterness and join society, rather than living like a hermit up in the mountains. Charlie Brown, ironically, is the only story with any socialist values at all, and they’re negative. Charlie Brown used everyone’s money to make a terrible economic decision and invest in a bad tree that didn’t fulfill its intended function. The people were then forced to band together to make the best out of this smoking ruin on their own initiative. In essence, A Charlie Brown Christmas is about a government using the people’s money poorly, and then the public sector having to make the best of it with their own innovation.
lol natural law trumps monarchical law any day
Ah yes a government where you vote for a candidate to lead your nation doesnt get elected and youre forced to be under his or her reign for 4 or 8 years is better than a benovolent monarchy. Kys
Where does it say that in the Bible? Divine right of kings wasn't biblical.
You did have Saul, David, and Salomon, all put in place by God. But Salomon fucked everything up
Where does it say in the bible that God accepts a democracy or a republic even?
What's the official name of Heaven? or
Bible confirmed for thousands of years of jewish editing.
What are you, stupid? We live under a legitimate government now, whatever legitimacy the post-colonial government had is irrelevant. Your entire point is irrelevant.
You torched his ass
It's a deeply rooted secular traditions, and only recently the left got a martyr to celebrate! Some mentally ill literally who in Poland, who set himself on fire, (but only after giving out leaflets regurgitating (((MSM))) in front of Joseph Stalin's Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw.
Yea its legitimate only because the colonialists were violent and killed british troops to gain independance.
So you agree with me. What's your point faggot?
Well the fact that its legitimate by de facto doesnt mean its legitimate.
2 Thessalonians 3:10
How can the Bible support socialism, if it goes against the very notion of revolution?
Imagine having a monarchy that acted like hitler and cared for the people by providing excellent social services to keep the nation happy that america doesnt have.
Leaving out de fact
*Prostitution *pornographer *coal miner *hard labor *any over bearing occupation that doesnt pay you a living wage
These are not work for human beings.
These are occupations for human beings,
*gardening *opening any ethically run buisness *entertainment *anything that is easy and functional that doesnt cause injury or bodily problems
Imagine if you weren’t a paid shill and weren’t a mentally defective pile of shit.
People like you and in general are retarded, they need a monarchy.
Monarchy is far superior to democracy or republicanism. Here's a big red pill.
The revolutionary mind is the heart of all flawed thoughts in this batshit crazy world. Christ wants people to quit being revolutionaries and focus on living a better life. That's all. Anything further than that is just wishful thinking. Remember: communists are the most anti-religion bitches in the world, because they know the path to conservatism is paved through religion, as flawed as religion is. The biggest group of dissent from the communist groups are from rock-bottom degenerates converting, they try to stop the leaks by forbidding religion.
Don't fall into the bait.
Women are human beings, you sexist pig I agree, kikes aren't people.
I can. I just read history. My language and people exist thanks to the benevolence of Tsar Nikolai II.
What is norway?
A country that cannot have a proper business sytem at work because there's so much taxes and so many public workers it is bound to follow the ways of Sweden if cucks get into power (which they eventually do).
Just as europe adopted christianity and abondoned paganism, the united states must abandon itd pagan religion of capitalism and adopt socialism, its done wonders for scandinavia.
Nice try moskel
Eat shit, you completely fucking retarded redditor.
Jesus said don't rock the boat goyim give the tax man his shekels.
Hitler tried revolting. Didn't work, he lost 20 loyal men. Then he sucked up his pride and went through the democratic (satanic) model.
This is one of those:
IF your rulers are doing the will of god, pay taxes, if they are not, hang them respect those you OUGHT TO respect, not the usurpers that claim to be rulers if YOU GOT YOURSELF INTO DEBT, pay the debt, if the debt was unjustly imposed, kill the usurer
I honestly don't see how you come to that conclusion? Seems you just interpret it as you wish.
Oh yeah, I'm definately the jew for wanting less taxation and PROPER (read: non-crony) capitalism. Yeah, tell me how big government is so nice, shapeshifting Mordecai.
How about you speak like a normal fucking human and stop using question marks at the end of affirmatives?
Did you mean write like. a normal human, because I was? not speaking!
You skipped a phase. If they are not, it is your obligation to become a leader. The new leadership can then judge the old one.
Sounds exquisite to me
Right because their is ONE king who all earthly powers ought to be subjected to.
Gods preferred form of government in the OT for Isrr before half of them became satanic kikes and were still retarded assholes that were salvagable was a Republic. The ruling of 8 judges based on their committment and understanding of scripture
And what is the greek used here for "government rulers"? I DARE YOU TO POST IT :^)
Only reason why they got a King was cus the Isrealites kept complaining that they werent like the neigboring kingdoms
Though you are not op, I also DARE YOU TO POST THE GREEK which was translated in ops "easy-read" version "government rulers".
If I get then Jesus loves Hitler & he's in heaven above.

And for some more fun, have a look at "masters" in 1 Peter 2:18.
So the actual meaning of this text is "Might is Right".
oy vey, having a ruler (like that disgusting goy Hitler) is bad!
1 Peter 2:18, the greek for "master"
It's in agreement. You will approve :^)
I have no clue what you are talking about.
GEE WILLIKERS, I SURE DO WONDER WHERE ALL THESE ANTI-CHRIST POSTERS COME FROM!
