"Your Romans 13:1 text was written by Paul in 1st century Rome when he was encouraging new Christians in an existing political structure. Does it apply today? Did it apply in 1776, when the colonies revolted against England? "
is there a time limit on God's Word? I don't think so.
All's I know is that God sets up leaders.
Ecclesiastes talks about seasons which also applies.
We know God moves men to do what He wants.
Each of us will find out the Truth one day - hopefully.
