Nun wrote, "You tipped your hand when you wrote:
"clea(r)ly someone needs to enforce God's command. I believe the government is His instrument for that."
"You believe that government is ordained of God to be His 'enforcer'.
Your government is anything but godly, or obedient.
How do you reconcile the two?
Romans 13. All of the governments belong to God. They rise and fall as they obey His unchanging will.
