Definition of Legitimate Government

The Lord gives a definition of legitimate civil government:

Romans 13:3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the

evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is
good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4 For he is the
minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil,
be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister
of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.

When civil government becomes distructive to the ends appointed

by God, then they may be lawfully resisted, just as fathers, mothers,
pastors, and judges may be resisted because those who promote evil
and punish the good are ministers of the devil and not of God. They
are not to be honored any more than Haman. Esther 3:1-5

Pietists will purse their lips and say "tut, tut," but I have written the


Samesex marriage; abortion on demand, even for babies born;

ignoring the covenant of the government with the states and people,
violating the 3rd commandment; Disarming the people; forcing
Christians to deny their consciences; confiscation of property to
reward ignorant voters; Corruption of the educational system to
promote materialistic agnosticism in defiance of God; Fanning of
racial hatred; Refusal to protect citizens by opening the border to
criminals; Supplying weapons to drug lords; need I go on? What
would a government have to do to become wicked? and I don't
mean just one party.
