AmorFati, I'm not doing a drive-by post. I am actually interested in the topic. I would love to hear what you guys think about Christian Anarchy and what you see wrong with it or what benefits you would see if someone was an anarchist and a Jesus follower. A couple verses (if you guys care to look into it) that I base my anarchy/christian beliefs on are:
1 Samual 8 (Israel asks for a king)
5 and say unto him, `Lo, thou hast become aged, and thy sons have not walked in thy ways; now, appoint to us a king, to judge us, like all the nations.'
6 And the thing is evil in the eyes of Samuel, when they have said, `Give to us a king to judge us;' and Samuel prayeth unto Jehovah.
7 And Jehovah saith unto Samuel, `Hearken to the voice of the people, to all that they say unto thee, for thee they have not rejected, but Me they have rejected, from reigning over them.
8 According to all the works that they have done from the day of My bringing them up out of Egypt, even unto this day, when they forsake Me, and serve other gods -- so they are doing also to thee.
9 And now, hearken to their voice; only, surely thou dost certainly protest to them, and hast declared to them the custom of the king who doth reign over them.'
Later in the book Israel states:
I Samuel 12:19 The people all said to Samuel, "Pray to the LORD your God for your servants so that we will not die, for we have added to all our other sins the evil of asking for a king."
Those are 2 main Go-To verses that I try to show Christians who vote for the less of 2 evils and to those who think our system is amazing and a God send.
11 and the Pharisees having seen, said to his disciples, `Wherefore with the tax-gatherers and sinners doth your teacher eat?'
12 And Jesus having heard, said to them, `They who are whole have no need of a physician, but they who are ill;
13 but having gone, learn ye what is, Kindness I will, and not sacrifice, for I did not come to call righteous men, but sinners, to reformation.'
And there a whole lot more I could go into. But I will get to those as conversation proceeds (hopefully)
Spread the freedom!
