Mario Murillo: Excellent points brought out by Mario on a couple of ideas that some of the corporate church in America has in regards to government which could cost us in this year’s midterms. There are not very many preachers out there making bold statements like these!
Excerpt from Mario Murillo:
1. It’s bone-headed to say we must submit to government no matter what: No sane Christian believes Hitler was God’s will for Germany. God raised up divine retribution on him through the nations of the world. God works through people to restrain evil. The church must do her duty to restrain evil.
“The authorities that exist”: This phrase means authority from God, not rogue authority. Satan is rogue authority. God has always balanced the threat of tyranny with authorities He raises up: “God’s minister to execute wrath.”
Moreover, it says “No ruling authority from God is a terror to good works.” They do not persecute God’s people or enact laws to ban the Gospel. So what do you call authority that is a terror to good works?
