You hear many Christians regurgitating many biblical falsities. Obviously, people believe one another and the mainstream establishment, not just the media way too much.
Green has written a powerful essay with biblical references suggesting the Jesus was an anti-government protester, radical and what we call a libertarian today. Not in those words, but I have always thought this and he has given us the scriptural basis for it.
See what you think in the below link to the site of Lew Rockwell. Lew and his site, is another group worth reading.
Jesus specifically made this clear in Matthew 20:25:
“…the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them. Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant.”
Jesus then, taught that there are two kinds of “rulers” – and that there are two ways of becoming “great“:
- One is by performing a valuable service to others.
- The other is by violently lording it over others and demanding their submission.
