The Romans 13 Fallacy
An Eye-Opening Discovery
Recently in Sunday school, it was decided that we would discuss Romans 13 and Titus. In preparation for the lesson, I began studying several treatises on the subject and discovered that there has been an ongoing debate for decades, if not in fact scores of decades, regarding these scriptures and passages similar to them.
Wow! Where had I been during all those years? Somehow, I assumed that Christians everywhere were on the same page regarding our place in the world and was shocked to learn that such is not the case.
As a result of this eye-opening discovery, I began researching in earnest for an answer to the question regarding a Christian’s duty in relationship to so-called “government.” But no matter how many articles I read regarding the subject, all left me wanting. It was as if there was some fundamental truth that nobody was addressing. Eventually, the amazingly obvious answer came to light and now I share that revelation with you . . . .
Two Main Postulates
There are many passages in the Bible that one could choose regarding one’s relationship with government. Nevertheless, there seem to be two main postulates in operation from which all others are derived:
- Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s and unto God the things that are God’s. -Matthew 22:21
- Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. – Romans 13:1
I. The Render unto Caesar Fallacy
The Render unto Caesar fallacy has held great sway in America. This is a living testimony to the resonant success of the Satanic American educational system, the hallmark of which is induced ignorance.
It is a fact that Americans are given no basic education in law. The common Christian misinterpretation of this passage belies a tragic unfamiliarity with the history, structure and principles of American government.
Article I, Section 9, clause 8 of the United States Constitution states:
No title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.
Article I, Section 10, clause 1 of the United States Constitution further states:
No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility.
Americans who quote the “Caesar” line are woefully ignorant of world history. During the time of Christ, the Romans viewed Caesar as a god. There were no elections for Caesar. Modern Christians fail to remember that the reason why the ancient Christians were persecuted by the Romans was because they refused to worship the Roman pagan gods and Caesar.
America does not have a Caesar. America has never had a Caesar and America will never have a Caesar. IT’S ILLEGAL! Neither can Christians legally “honor the King.” There will never be a King, Queen, Prince, Princess, Duke, Duchess, Earl, etc. in America because Titles of Nobility are outlawed in the United States.
- The President of the United States is merely an elected job-holder, NOT a monarch.
- The President assumes an office not a throne.
- The President is simply a civil administrator, not a divine ruler.
- There are no coins or paper currency minted in the United States with the face of the current US President or any other living civil servant printed upon it.
The fact is, thanks to The Constitution written by our forefathers, Christians cannot render anything unto A WORLDLY GOD. To attempt to do so is illegal . . . period. Time has proven that our forefathers did not get everything right. But they certainly got this part right. They crafted the Constitution with the Bible in mind and they specified that government (mere men) can never claim to be divine authority.
By the way, these “Render unto Caesar” Christians entirely miss what was happening in Matthew 22:21. The Pharisees and Sadducees were attempting to trick Jesus with a choice of GODS. They were hoping that Jesus would pronounce Caesar to be just a man, which they then would have used against him, reporting his “blasphemy against Caesar” to the Romans. The passage is NOT about government at all. Caesar was NOT a government. It was about a choice of GODS.
The words “Caesar”, “King” and “President” are NOT interchangeable, at least not in America. Christians who blithely parrot the “Caesar” or “King” doggerel are -in fact- traitors to The Constitution of the United States and threaten everything our Christian forefathers fought to establish and died to preserve.
It would behoove these unpatriotic American Christians to familiarize themselves with the history of our country, to respect and honor the heritage of America and to rectify their woeful ignorance. Wild extrapolation of scripture predicated upon benighted imagination is no substitute for crystal clear fact.
If traitorous “Christian” citizens want to “honor the king” . . . fine . . . but they’ll need to move to another country to do it. The Constitution of the United States mandates that here in America, only one king may be honored legally . . . the King of Kings: Jesus Christ.
