true citizenship Romans 13 1

Romans 13:1 Let every soul be in subjection to the superior authorities, for there is no authority except by God; the existing authorities stand placed in their relative positions by God. 2 Therefore he who opposes the authority has taken a stand against the arrangement of God; those who have taken a stand against it will receive judgment to themselves

Temporal rulers represent the ruling principle of divine law, and in the degree that we become obedient to that law their authority to us is divine.

We reject that we are at liberty to serve in the armed forces, in the police force, take part in jury duty or politics, or recover debts by legal coercion. [These constitute elements of society and its law-enforcement requirements, of which the believer will have no part. — Jn . 17:16]

The NT teaches that our "true citizenship" is from heaven, I.e., when Jesus returns and establishes the Kingdom of his God on earth: Phil 3.20. Thus, for the time being, we're described as "foreigners, resident aliens": 1 Peter 2.11

So if you're a Christian think twice before pledging allegiance to ANY flag by killing for home or country!

We honor kings, but do not vote for them....we respect law and order but do not seek to be officiers of the law....we are polite and pay taxes, but our allegiance is to God, not man.

Do not follow the spirit of the moment

For true believers we are not part of this age therefore we should not worried about immigration we are not part of this world we have a better place to live an heavenly country the fullness of things to come
