|Romans 13: The True Meaning of Submission (paperback, 2nd Edition) by Attorney Timothy Baldwin and Pastor Chuck Baldwin is a classic synopsis regarding a Christian's duty to civil government. The authors show with
overwhelming evidence that submission to government is limited and that
the obey-government-no-matter-what argument is false. It discusses sound
rules of interpretation and construction, incorporates biblical
reasoning, and uses hundreds of Scriptural proofs for its conclusions.
Many Christian pastors and leaders today are erroneously reviving the divine-right-of-kings
argument used in the Dark Ages, which created some of the most horrific
human affairs in history. They, like the grandfather of Communism, Georg Hegel, argue that government is Divinely sanctioned to do anything it pleases
and that God requires people to submit regardless of God's standards of
justice. This argument has been used by virtually every tyrant since
Jesus' life, including Adolf Hitler.
This false doctrine is doing more to bring America and the rest
of the world into slavery than perhaps any other thing. Holders of this
doctrine are creating self-fulfilling prophecies of America's
destruction. Romans 13-The True Meaning of Submission challenges this absurd interpretation of the Bible and Romans chapter 13.
Perhaps more than any other resource, Romans 13: The True Meaning of Submission will
help you achieve a much greater and deeper understanding of and
appreciation for the Biblical teaching regarding a person's duty of
submission and relationship towards government. There is hardly a
subject today more needed in political, philosophical, and theological
"This is a book that should be in the home of every Christian
who is concerned about liberty and who desires to help others understand
that Paul was not advocating passivity in the face of growing tyranny."
