Before the Iraq war, prominent evangelicals such as Henry Blackaby cited the apostle Paul to stanch any opposition to the Iraq war. Regrettably, Blackaby was not alone.
Today, I see that an MP in the Zimbabwe parliament is citing the great apostle to condemn the political opponents of Robert Mugabe. Really, you can't make this stuff up.
For some clear-headed observations on the text, I would commend Chuck Baldwin, and Rushdoony. Feel free to check out my brief and meandering thoughts related to Christians and government as well as a response to Christian anarchists.
