Some who fought against the kingdom of England, had their own kingdom of America in mind. The Word states that "a little leaven, leaveneth the the whole lump?" As in the case with Christ Jesus and Judas, traitors were involved. The crookedness begins with people following after "another god."
I conducted my own study of Dictators in America; it is a System, that goes way back. I could not believe my eyes concerning Lincoln. President George Washington respected the position, and warned of the negative possibilities. He was Not connected to a party;He believed that parties would bog the govt. down.
The Judas from the Revolutionary War was Alexander Hamilton[do a search]. Where America is now, began with this traitor. His small leaven spread into the Executive Branch becoming a Dictatorship, hidden under cute names and titles. He and followers hide behind idols and cause America to violate the First, of the Ten Commandments.
We are taught [2Cor.6:14] Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers. The yoke requires that the work is evenly spread-and both are on the same page. Believers work is for the Kingdom of Heaven-on earth. Feeding the hungry, water for the thirsty, clothing the naked, visiting the sick. Spreading the Gospel. Delivering from bondage.
Romans 13 has been used by politicians and churches to require submission by the people, to those in charge. Rom. 13 is actually is a requirement to oppose wicked rulers; no cursing or violence is needed. The miss-teaching works on ignorant subjects. We simply turn the light on for others, and rebuke the wicked System. The leaders and the System must be of Elohim[God] and not lil'g. They must follow all of the Thou shalt not, and Thou shalt of the Word. "No man can serve Two Masters."
