It's been reported that the Federal Government has recruited some "ministers" of "Christian" churches to impress upon their people the need to obey the higher powers like Paul in Romans 13 tells them to do. The conclusion and application to us goes: If the government tells the American people that they have no second amendment rights and that they are to hand over any and all small arms they may have, then we should comply as a "Christian's" duty to God to obey our "magistrates".
These traitorous criminals now in Washington DC think they can interpret Romans 13 but fail to be able to interpret the US Constitution.
It is true that Christians should all be subject to the higher authorities, governments and peace officers because they keep the peace and punish those that do evil. That's why we pay taxes so we can have that order in society.
But there is a big "However" when applying that to "We The People of the United States". Because We the People of the United States ARE the government; a Government of the people, by the people and for the people. So it begs the question, to whom then are we ultimately in subjection in the United States? WE are the higher authority - in our government, the highest authority. In our case we are subject to the supreme law of the land, viz. the U.S. Constitution.
"the ultimate authority ... resides in the people alone,"
(James Madison, author of the Bill of Rights, in Federalist Paper #46.)
Romans 13 does apply well in places of local civil authority, and Christians, indeed everyone, should submit to them for the sake of peace and conscience. But when the Federal government is overthrown by criminals, thugs and traitors who usurp the US Constitution, then they are not our government authorities any longer. The US Constitution by We the People of the United States is the supreme law of the land. When it gets overthrown, then We the People have a right and a DUTY to rise up and protect our government of the People, and shake off from ourselves the unlawful usurpers of our God ordained government, the US Constitution. So Bush, Cheney and their cabal of Israeli think tanks have no ground on which to stand. Obama is a criminal for lying about being born in Hawaii. He was born in Kenya according to his wife and therefore not a natural born citizen and thus unqualified to be President of these United States. Not only that but he now has arrogated to himself dictatorial powers to invade other sovereign nations using the US military without the consent or even knowledge of the People of the United States.
We the People of the United States have every right and duty to fend off an unconstitutional declaration of martial law and protect ourselves and our property from the coup against our government that has been perpetrated slowly since the days of Franklin Roosevelt. Christians should obey and support the higher authorities and that authority is the Constitution of the United States.
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
Therefore Christian, obey the law.
