    I don’t believe disrespect for authorities is a given here in this nation, nor codified. What the Freemason Deist founding fathers of America did (note their spiritual affiliation and philosophical and theological understanding of the nature of God, which is completely antithetical and foreign to the apostolic Christian understanding) was replace one primal authority with another, namely the Crown was replaced by a Constitution. Respect for the Constitution and the laws of this nation are what is now codified. Respect for these institutions and the civil authorities in this republic are a given and necessary, if we are ‘to keep the Republic’ as Benjamin Franklin said. So your point that “by respecting the civil authorities here you are disrespecting the primal authority by which they got into power” does not make sense to me. They did not destroy civil or state power, they simply replaced it, and while they did demonstrate disrespect to the ordained authorities by their revolution, what they insisted upon and expected was respect and allegiance to the Constitution and other charters of the early Republic. Now we can argue the merits of the Constitution and a democratically elected Constitutional Republic versus other forms of governments (all have their own advantageous and disadvantages, and most definitely some are better at producing lasting peace and justice than others), but as a Christian, our main goal as I know you would agree is seeking and entering the Kingdom of Heaven, even as we struggle in this fallen world, in whatever circumstance we find ourselves, freeman or slave. No one should believe for a second that an American citizen living with many civil freedoms and liberties and living a prosperous American dream has an advantage in getting into Heaven over, say, a persecuted, poor citizen suffering under a tyrannical authoritative regime. Indeed, I would say it will be much easier for the latter than the former before the judgment seat of God. (this is probably straying from our topic however). What no Church Father ever taught however was anarchy, which is antithetical to the will of God. Nor constant rebellion cause of muh’ rights, as if the state is what will lead us to the fulfillment of life which is found not in this world but in a much higher realm. That doesn’t mean we should necessarily be passive sheep and silently take unjustified abuse (even though that is in fact the divine way as demonstrated by the Suffering Servant and Innocent Lamb of God Jesus Christ). But it is not easy being a Saint and to follow this higher path, especially when our egos and pride constantly seeks self-serving satisfaction and human justice. But God knows we are weak, and, thankfully, He is merciful, and oppossing tyrannical regimes and occupiers can of course blessed by God when done for righteous and selfless reasons, such as protecting the faithful and the innocent. Government is a force, a tool, which can be used for good or for bad. It is not de facto an enemy of the people nor the Church, and can very well be an ally in the protection of the faithful and in fulfilling the admonition of Christ to spread the gospel and baptize the world in the Name of the Holy Trinity. We pray every Divine Liturgy that God enlightens our civil authorities to make good use of such worldly power and authority, for peaceful and just purposes. All the Church Fathers exalted the good aspects of civil governing forces, while castigating the particular bad aspects, especially those which were unjust or idolatrous.

    As with many things related to Christianity, we have profound differences in opinion, especially on what the Church Fathers taught and the role they play in handing down the deposit of the faith of the Apostles through the power of the Holy Spirit. A quick internet search led me to this blog which I thought you might find interesting. It is a review by an Evangelical of a book written by a Baptist who actually read and studied the writings of the Church Fathers. To summarize: In his response in the final chapter Gordon Heath looks at the attitude of the early church fathers towards empire. He approaches the issue not as a biblical scholar but as a historian—and I would suggest, on reflection, that a major part of the problem with New Testament interpretation at the moment is that it is being done by theologians and not by historians. Heath thinks not only that the anti-imperial orientation of the New Testament has been overstated but also that there is a strong element of support for the empire in the writings of the early fathers that must call into question the view that Constantine was a massive aberration. The typical “decline paradigm” in church history is that the church lost its pristine purity after Emperor Constantine’s profession of faith and the subsequent Christianization of the Roman Empire in the fourth century. As noted above, contemporary scholars assume and claim that the New Testament writers were opposed to empire. But were the earliest Christians as anti-empire as recent scholars claim? And was the supportive posture towards the empire after Constantine that much of a shift from the attitudes of the earliest church fathers about the empire? This response argues that, if the church fathers are any indication, in both cases the answer is no. (262)

    Greeting my brother, I hope your fast is going well. I prefer not to get into a debate at this time, but there are many resources available within the writings of the Church which touch upon this particular matter. I would simply respond by pasting below a writing of a contemporary martyr of the Church, Father Alexander Men, in his patristic elaboration regarding Romans 13. This is from a man who lived under the yoke of communist USSR and its severe persecution’s of Christians. https://www.fatheralexander.org/booklets/english/romans_e.htm#n24 My only personal points I would bring up at this time is that, unlike what Superflous Man has posted, the Apostles themselves understood and taught that the state (or the reality of civil rulers in a society) is a given in this world, and that anarchy is not the solution. Both Sts. Paul and Peter write to this effect, as well as the Apostolic Fathers St. Clement and St. Ignatius, who were both martyred for the faith along the two great Apostles mentioned before. Not one of the Apostles, nor any of the Church Fathers, promoted Christians to seek the dissolution of the State or to promote anarchy. The Christian is a sourjouner in this world, of course, and must live in the world, even as they are apart of the world. But living in the world means to respect the civil structures which society has adopted, even as they are full of worldly problems. The State (nation, etc), like many things in this world, is a necessary evil this side of heaven, and the Apostolic way, as expressed by the Church Fathers and Saints who continue the Apostolic preaching (kerygma) and shepherding of Christ’s flock, have always seen that although a monarchy is the closest to what the Kingdom of Heaven is, no State structure is perfect and is rather a pale imitation of what awaits in the age to come. But nevertheless, it is our goal as Christians, and especially with regards to the Church rulers, to work with the State whenever possible in order to allow the fullness of the faith to flourish amongst the believers to the extent possible. Not at the expense of the doctrines, of course, which are unassailable, but in symphonia and cooperation in order to bring peace and justice in whatever degree possible by the will of God. If you prefer more sources aside from the what I have pasted below, please pm me. There are many writings, including from Saints who themselves were persecuted or martyred by a tyrannical State, which express the same apostolic belief. :

    Realistically, it wouldn't have been so expensive to have piping with firefighting foam applicators built into the exterior of those tanks. All that would happen then would be the tank catches fire and the sensors on the tank trigger the foam system.

    That's because it was a freaking wall of text and the only part that was relevant is what I responded to. In my post I talked about the fact that some areas of the south where there wasn't a lot of slave ownership seceded from the south and that the south had to institute a draft to have enough soldiers. Your wall of text actually proved my two main points!

    California did not overturn Prop 8. A federal judge overturned it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2008_California_Proposition_8 And California state officials did not sue to have the law overturned. They didn't defend the law either. They stayed neutral and didn't touch the hot potato.

  8. Sorry, but you have failed. That verse does not contain the words "Grace is irresistible." You can interpret it that way, but that's not what the verse says. You had to admit there was "relational language" in the Bible. Yet you have stuck to your guns that there isn't a verse that says "Have a relationship with Jesus." Likewise there is no verse that says "Grace is irresistible." If you were honest you would simply admit that. But you aren't honest.
