    At this point we have to make some theological distinctions. The two wills of God, his predestinarian will vs his prescriptive will. If you mean prescriptive will, than I agree with you. God prescribes his people to choose godly judges (Deut 17, Exodus 18, Romans 13:3-5, etc.) and sometimes the people disobey. On the other hand, God's sovereign hand is in control of all that happens. I was dealing with the former, the prescriptive will, so you're right, God doesn't "support" all rulers. But I was talking about government as an ideal or an institution, not the way it always acts :D

    No, this is a mistake. Jesus says all power and authority were given to him in Matthew 28. The disciples were to go out and *disciple nations*. Ultimately they would not remain under Satan anymore

    Israel had a unique relationship with God in which God told them what to do directly. But even then, they had civil magistrates, they just didn't take the form of a human monarch. Jesus Christ continues to rule over the nations, but he now rules through his revelation that is God's Word, rather than by audibly telling Christians what to do and what not to do. None of the other nations are condemned for having kings in the OT either, though they are condemned for other reasons.

    I'm sympathetic to Monarchy. I think its a valid form of government, and I'm open to the idea that it might be the best one prudentially in some (perhaps many/most) circumstances. But ideologically I'm a theocrat.

    Right? I mean the only way the market there can support $3500/month rent is if there are enough people who are paying it. There's no reason all of that excess money should be going into real estate. If the foodworkers and other "support" occupations left the area, there would instantly be a demand for them which would raise their pay naturally.

    Oh, I think you're going to see many corporations getting into block-chain cryptocurrencies over the next few years. FB, Amazon, banking companies, maybe even Walmart. The only way I see to prevent their entry is for the Fed to crack down hard - and they might. Especially, if the reserve currency of the world is threatened.

    You'd probably hate the rest of my political ideology, but to a large extent I agree with this. I do believe government is part of how God created the world, and have gone a long way away from the anarcho-capitalism I used to hold. But I really think 300 million people being under the dominion of one person or group is way, way too many in almost any case.

    Whatever 1 Timothy 2 might or might not mean, it certainly means the most immediate implication that Paul saw fit to draw, namely that women shouldn't be teaching men in an ecclesiastical context. That would rule out female pastors, "priests" etc. I see that AF is jaded because of Romans 13. Romans 13 is a tricky passage, and unlike the whole issue of women pastors, Romans 13 has some debate during church history, especially during the Reformation. Personally, I believe Romans 13 is prescriptive, not descriptive, ie. "this is how government, properly defined, is" rather than the total statist version that some people see because I don't think that's consistent with Romans 13:3-5. But even then, I do think the passage teaches that there ought to be a State and that it ought to legislate based off the (objective, Biblical) definitions of good and evil. And I know full well that ain't a popular stance here.

Big scandal a few years ago with a pedophile coach and a cover up. Really, one of Remys best weaving in so many references.

    Oh, if that were only true... Sadly, it isn't. From what I've read, the Child Tax Credit is doubled. Since it is a "credit", you get that "back" whether or not you've paid anything in. And since the other "credits" were left intact, (student loan, medical expense, "American Opportunity" tax credit, education credits, etc.), If you have a dependent and pay no taxes, you will get an even bigger handout from the gubmint teat. And if you're too poor to buy health insurance, you won't be getting taxed ("fined") for not purchasing it. So, if your poor and file, chances are you're getting a tax, uh, cut??? Well, not exactly sure what you call it, but you're getting more money.

    Yep. Absolutely! Because of stupid laws, you're not allowed to have beer or wine inside, but that's not going to be an issue with the bourbon!! (I guess indoor smoking is better for your health if you don't combine it with beer???) Seriously, the owner really planned this out well. I can't wait for the first big game there! I wonder if I can sneak away on Christmas day to watch the Steelers take on the Texans??? In any case, playoffs are a-coming!

    And it's about 3 minutes away from my house! I was doing some Christmas shopping and stumbled upon a newer cigar shop. It's in a different direction than my normal commute and I don't head out that way very often. There's another shop on my way to work that I always hit, but they didn't have what I wanted so I tried this place. Let me tell you!!! First of all, it's a HUGE shop with everything you can imagine. Secondly, it's more of a club that has a shop than just a shop. Inside the non-descript exterior lies a man cave like I have never seen. The bar is stocked with every kind of whiskey - even extremely rare bottles!! Parker's Heritage anyone? Pappy van Winkle? The leather lounge chairs are all the latest theater seating with the electronics built in. There's a 220 inch theater screen for the big games with several smaller ones about for other viewing. There's a couple of pool tables, electric massage chairs in a more private room, poker tables set-up for friendly play, an outdoor patio, and even a $30K golf simulator with the local PGA course programmed in! The owner is even talking about adding a full theater to the mix. The $50 monthly membership fee gets you a private humidor locker to keep your goodies, a key to the place with access 24/7 and allows you to buy at wholesale instead of retail. It also covers you first $50 of spending each month, so if you spend $50 in drinks or cigars each month, your membership is essentially free. Hell, it's worth it just to use the simulator twice a month... Other places charge you $25-$30 per hour!

    erowe1, are you seriously taking the position that cops are "innocent until proven guilty"? Or are you just messing with people here to see if they are parroting what they've been told without thinking about it?

    Mind you, I'm not talking about the not-so-subtle "Let's lynch 'em" attitude. I tend to think that's a bad idea, even if I philosophize in weird directions sometimes (its part of my efforts to stay sane while surrounded by statists IRL, give me a break). But, there is a difference between saying "we shouldn't condone harming X for Y or Z reasons" and saying "X is actually innocent."

    Note, also by "innocent" I don't even mean morally sinless, I just mean per the NAP. I'd honestly be shocked if there is a single cop who's been on the force for more than a week who isn't an NAP violator. Do you disagree?

    Thanks for the sermon. Good stuff. I passed it on to my parents. My dad's a pastor so I'd love to see him converted to the view of Romans 13 that you take or a similar one.

    Just out of curiosity, how well received was that message in your church?

    Thanks. One of my brothers in Christ who I respect and love told me that a Christian man should spend more time with his brothers than people in the world. I was spending so much time on the forums with these unbelievers, and when he said that, I was extremely convicted. There is nothing like spending time with brothers who build you up in the Lord and sharpen you.
