Human government is a joke, and a bad one at that. Try and try as he might, “man” almost inevitably screws it up. Will human government ever get it right?Hellfire Drone

This, by the way, is hardly a new state of affairs. King David wrote about it long ago:

“Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against his Anointed, saying, “Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.” He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision.” – Psalms 2:1-4

Yep, God is laughing… and we also ought to deride and ridicule any so-called “government” that does not squarely align itself with biblical principles. What principles, you may ask? How about starting with a few of the very best known of “The Big Ten?”

“You shall not murder.” – Exodus 20:13

That should be straightforward enough… but now it seems to be acceptable and scarcely even commented on that the President of the United States need only issue a memo to have American citizens destroyed by hellfire missiles. Or, have we already forgotten the men, women and children who were gunned down and burned to death in Waco? Maybe we are trying to forget Vicki Weaver, shot through the head by a federal gunman while she was standing in her own doorway holding her baby in her arms. Then there’s the “collateral damage” – a.k.a. civilian casualties – of all of the fought-for-profit wars the US is prosecuting around the globe…

Here’s another one:

“You shall not steal.” – Exodus 20:15

…. “because,” as the bumper sticker puts it, “the government hates competition!”

And by the way, it doesn’t much matter what you call it… property tax, income tax, “your fair share,” whatever. Taking from the one who earned it and using it for yourself or giving it to another is robbery, plain and simple. Outlawing “counterfeiting” and enforcing “legal tender” laws to control what must be accepted as payment, while simultaneously firing up the printing presses and devaluing every hard-earned dollar while its owners sleep; what abominable hypocrisy!

Here’s one final one; if you don’t get the idea after this one, I’m afraid I’ll just have to give up on you:

“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.”  – Exodus 20:16

The concept of “due process” is all but dead in America. False accusations? Bring them on! Does your neighbor look suspicious? Turn him in to “Homeland Security!” Don’t like the man next door? Just accuse him of molesting his children… all it takes is one anonymous accusation.

And so, my friend, I hope you’re beginning to “get it” now… human government is truly laughable! It’s long past time to abandon your respect for renegade human governments that commit all of this evil while shaking their fist in the face of God. Such governments are, according to Romans 13:1, “of none authority.” It’s time to move on!
