The Baldwins are stalwart, bold American statesmen; but they missed a golden opportunity.

First, a few editing points: several grammatical/spelling errors in the book ('principal' for principle', etc) and they twice use the term, "begging the question" in the silly way it is often used today, to suggest "that invites the question...". 'Begging the question' is a logical fallacy, referring to the tactic of a debater using his desired conclusion as one of his premises; called 'petitio principii' in Latin. A minor quibble, but distracting nonetheless.

In the local and state context, Romans 13 can be applied simply enough: citizens, aliens, and magistrates must not break the law, or they can expect to meet 'law enforcement'. Everyone must obey the law, including public servants, the legislature, state courts, and governors. The State Constitution is the "higher power" in your State and must be obeyed; no one is above the law. When you violate it, you should expect repercussions.

Now consider the federal employee or office-holder. The state employee or elected servant has only the People to answer to under his state constitution, but the public servant at the federal level has the People *and* the States to answer to, as stipulated in the U.S. Constitution.

We have no Caesars in America; the LAW is king here, as the Baldwins make clear in this book.

ROMANS 13: THE TRUE MEANING OF SUBMISSION is a much needed book for our day. It is exegetical, historical and reverent.

At its roots this is a question of fidelity, loyalty and lordship. Only a Christian who willfully refuses to be convinced of the truth can oppose the position outlined in this book. The "absolutist" view is a willful act of sinful stubbornness and a rejection of Christ's lordship, embracing instead the lordship of "Caesar". Such a person should seriously re-examine their claim to being a genuine Christian.

I have one simple question for those who hold the contrary "absolutist" view. How is the failure to consider the fact that the Apostle Paul wrote the 13 Chapter of Book of Romans from a jail cell after he ran afoul of civil rulers anything other than a complete mental lapse and a logical contradiction?

Still waiting....

The founders of this country led the rebellion against England. At Lexington and Concord, it was a pastor that "fired the shot heard around the world". The Brits were marching to take away the people's guns and other freedoms.

Romans 13 does not teach submission to evil governments that kill innocents and harm the people in other ways.

for anyone who has thought they knew what Romans 13 was about you MUST read this book......it does not mean blindly submitting to authority....just ask 6 million jews, and 5 million blacks, asians and the people of Germany, Uganda, China, and many other evil dictatorships.
