When any “government” takes it upon itself to create “a law” that is clearly misaligned with God’s law, then that government has removed itself from the umbrella of God’s authority. This is a “Romans 13:1” issue.

“Let every soul to the higher authorities be subject, for there is no authority except from God, and the authorities existing are appointed by God,” – Romans 13:1 (Young’s Literal Translation)

Paraphrasing this verse to make the point perfectly clear,

“Every last human being had better get in line with the supreme authority of God’s law, because His law is the one and only source of authority in the universe, all legitimate authority flows from it, and any so-called authority that dares depart from that law is of none authority.”

And so, when the Food and Drug Administration took it upon itself to make the distribution and consumption of fresh, wholesome raw milk a crime, they clearly abdicated any supposed authority they may have had. This five-minute video chronicles the courageous resistance of a group of principled women who did for us what we all ought to do; they stood clearly and openly against this governmental abuse of authority.

 

This is an example of how all men (who consider themselves worthy of the name!) ought to deal with tyrannical government. Yes, we are enjoined by scripture to give honor to whom honor is due, but is not the converse is also true? Must we not also withhold honor from those who are not worthy of that honor?

God is the one who created milk for us to enjoy and benefit from. In cases like this, renegade “governing agents” have far overstepped their limits, and are due no less than our contempt and our resistance.
