HONOR THE EMPEROR?

Posted by Randy Buchanan in Facebook's Pentecostal Theology Group View the Original Post

“HONOR THE EMPEROR…” If you’re a Christ follower who allows a steady diet of Fox News or MSNBC political opinion to shape your thoughts, words and tone of voice, think again… Reading through the Bible and absorbing its Divinely inspired counsel keeps us on the right path in thoughts, words, tone of voice both spoken and written. Consider the Apostle Peter…

The Apostle Peter is in Rome about 64 AD. The Emperor of the Roman Empire is Nero. Yes the same Emperor it is said who torched Rome to rebuild it the way he wanted for his own glory. Under Nero our sisters and brothers in the early Church are being persecuted. Crucified, set on fire as torches, clothed in animal skins to be devoured by lions in the Roman Colosseum. That is the context of Peter’s letter we read today. Recall, Nero is Emperor… The Apostle Peter, who walked with Jesus in real time and place writes, “honor the Emperor” (1 Peter 2:17). Peter writes words of virtue and respect. Is Emperor Nero worthy of such respect? As a person, no, but the office of Emperor is worthy because God ordained the office (see Scripture references below). Remember Peter walked with Jesus. He saw and heard virtue in the incarnate Son of God. Nothing vile came out of the mouth of Jesus toward the Jewish Sanhedrin and the Roman occupation government that collaborated to crucify him. So Peter is living and writing with the virtue of Jesus. He is following the words of the Word of God incarnate, Jesus. So, may our words in voice and script be “honorable” to all public servants should they be Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. Ultimately our Sovereign God is in control (Jeremiah 25:8-9; Mark 12:17; John 19:11; Acts 4:27-28; Romans 13:1-4). In the meantime we are called to pray for “kings and all in high position.” The call to prayer is not quantified by a political party label. Remember, “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be on his shoulders…” (Isaiah 9:6a). Christ is in control in the now and certainly the future (Revelation 19: 11,15-16). “For to us a Son is born…” Merry Christmas…

    No Brother Troy Day The article is saying trust in God, trust in the Holy Spirit within the FRUIT & GIFTS thereof, trust in the Holy Scriptures, and the SIMPLICITY THEREOF, trust that God is in control for those in the Body of Christ that love him and are called according to his purpose. No matter what things may look like to our human, mortal, carnal, corrupt minds. No matter what any given situation looks like at the present time. Don’t trust in any news media reports, don’t trust in any world views and or events ect.. DON’T TRY TO BE INTELLECTUAL IN OUR CURRENT HUMAN FLESHLY CAPACITY. TRYING TO HAVE AN ANSWER AND OUR OWN OPINIONS ON WORLD EVENTS, THEOLOGY, INTERPRETATIONS ECT.. WHO CARES, FOR THAT CAUSES NOTHING BUT MORE CONFUSION, MORE DIVISION, MORE DOUBT, GIVING MORE OF A FOOTHOLD TO SATAN AND HIS POWERS TO KILL STEAL AND DESTROY.
    THE SIMPLICITY OF TRUSTING AND LEANING ON GOD WITH ALL OUR HEART AND NOT OUR OWN UNDERSTANDING. That is what this post that Brother Randy Buchanan posted is telling us. AND IF ANYONE THINKS THAT IS ANOTHER USE OF A LIBERAL BIBLE TRANSLATION!!! WE NEED TO PRAY THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT CONVICTS THEM BEFORE THEY DAY OF ACCOUNTABILITY. FOR MYSELF AND ALL OF THE BODY FOR BEING A STUMBLING BLOCK AND A HINDERANCE TO THE KINGDOM OF GOD!

    Ira Huth The word of GOD tells us nowhere to HONOR (not simply love) the emperor It does tell us to love the King though Randy Buchanan you meant different versions differ not from my opinion but from the Greek text of the Bible

    Emperor or Caesar in Greek is Καίσαρας

    Word used by Peter is βασιλέα – King (used for King of Kings in the Bible)

    Peter is not telling us to honor the emperor but the King of Glory Randy Buchanan I hope you are intelligent enough not to think that KJV translators used the word king and not emperor during James VI:)

    Ira Huth A Korean brother reading this type of discussions recently asked if Korean Christians are supposed to honor Kim Jong-un and his father Kim Jong-il ? The regime in their country uses this verse to demand that Christians honor by bowing and worshiping their party leaders. Same is being done now in government registered churches in China where a picture of their leader is being placed in each church altar

    Troy did you even read the article and understood the text. Did you not read my lengthy comment. The key text and subject matter is about a Followers of Christ who allow a constant steady diet of the News media shape their political opinion, thoughts tone of voice words ect .. Instead be divinely inspired with reading and rightly dividing the Word of God which gives us counsel on the right path in thoughts words and deed. It is not literally talking about Nero or any other dictator ect…

    Christopher Noel Boggess NT authors were notorious for showing in their writings they were NOT subject to the emperor but to their King Jesus

    The gospel writers showed Pilate writing Jesus was King
    Peter said honor the King (not the emperor)
    Paul from prison where he under Roman law was a servant of the emperor said, apostle and slave-bond-servant of Jesus. This statement not only denied belonging to the emperor but made Christ a higher king of the emperor, with more authority to collect emperor’s slaves and make them His own servants

    Oh, thank GOD this season for a King coming from Glory
    That we serve and honor our Heavenly King to Whom we belong after He bought us with His blood from any earthly emperor, king or president

Now to be fair where is the piece on God’s judgment of Iran and Syria and Saudi Arabia? Darfur and Sudan? And the Congo? The evils of this world are not limited to this country neither is his reach short nor the judgment of God slack.

      In Indonesia for nearly another month. Trump does not deem that popular here because of the Muslim majority and because his immigration policies were reported as being against Muslim countries, but this does not seem tobe a rallying point.

      Christians here pray for government officials who are Muslims. The governot of Jakarta, a Chinese man from a Protestant church, was sentenced under a vilification of religion law for disagreeing with an interpretation. Of the Qur’an. They use that law one

    Troy Day, I’m a lifelong conservative Christian who happens to vote Republican most of the time. I held my nose and voted for Donald Trump, because I knew the disaster that would befall the nation I loved if Hillary Clinton were elected. My first choice was Ted Cruz, whom I supported wholeheartedly in the 2016 primaries. I could have been comfortable with Marco Rubio, or quite frankly any of the Republicans [except for John Kasich], as Hillary Clinton, was completely unacceptable!

    As far as my theology goes, it is literal and conservative, right out of God’s word, especially in Genesis 1-11. The Genesis compromisers attempt to infuse God’s word with evolutionary thinking, like millions of years, is a fairly recent phenomenon if one considers the entire scope of church history since the 1st century AD.

    Therefore, Gappist false teachers like Scofield, Pember, and Dake, and apparently you, are the real liberals, trying to contort God’s word with modern, and false evolutionary based ideas!

His theology is of tertiary importance considering the fact that his core philosophical values were biblical, as he was the only true professed pro-life, anti same-sex marriage, pro limited government candidate.

    No one in the creation science movement is a kingdom now advocate, that’s just ignorant drivel that you’ve splattered on to this message board, for whatever reason perhaps just to go against anything I say because you are philosophically predisposed against the truth.

    As it is apparent from your labeling of what you think Marxism is, if you would have listened to any of Ted Cruz’s speeches or read any of the legislation that he has supported or sponsor, you would know that Marxism is 180° from anything Ted Cruz advocates!

    Pete Fiske Not sure what are you talking about? WP? NYT? Who careas about that when talking Dominionism?

    Dominionism is the theocratic idea that regardless of theological view, means, or timetable, Christians are called by God to exercise dominion over every aspect of society by taking control of political and cultural institutions.

    Dominionists celebrate Christian nationalism, in that they believe that the United States once was, and should once again be, a Christian nation. In this way, they deny the Enlightenment roots of American democracy. Of course, Christian nationalism takes a distinct form in the United States, but dominionism in all of its variants has a vision for all nations.

    Dominionists promote religious supremacy, insofar as they generally do not respect the equality of other religions, or even other versions of Christianity. In many ways, Ted Cruz personifies the story of dominionism: how it became the ideological engine of the Christian Right, and how it illuminates the changes underway in American politics, culture and religion that have helped shape recent history by Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael, who served as his son’s principal campaign surrogate during his senate and presidential campaigns

    To the OP. We’re not in Rome and Trump is not an emperor. And to disagree and express disagreement with Trump and to call him out when he is in the wrong, which I thinks what the PT article subtly seeks to discourage, is a responsibility as well as a privilege in our democratic republic.

    If the apostle Paul meant us to “honor the king” without question, he would have bowed to him as God and Lord.

    For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

    Timothy K. Wiebe Scotty Searan emperor Trump doing a fantastic job for emperor Putin – that I dont trust; Neither does JESUS

    John 2:24 But Jesus did not entrust Himself to them, for He knew all men

    most church people I asked about voting for Trump when I first engaged in his pre-campaign in 2009 said he was a crook. Now they praise him to be a God – personality cult is such a communist thing Nelson Banuchi Joseph Kidwell post us again the thing with divine Trump and Melania (the Link seems lost)

      Can you imagine how some Christians today would talk about King David if he ruled in our day? “You voted for a guy who watches women undress in their own home and then kills her husband to marry her?”

      well to be fair king David did have her husband killed so she would be a widow, its not like she still had a living husband when David -by law – could now take her .

      but what’s Tim alluding to? – Trump killed someones husband now? The iberals have no limits or merits

    @Timothy K. Wiebe just posted
    “I trust Trumps leadership, not his person”

    This is about as wrong as it gets
    Separation of the person from the person’s leadership borders spiritual schizophrenia

      Just like Obama he started well – granted. But he is dropping the bomb – big time. Not to mention miss representing the United States all over the world https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDjdpYUqaQk

      That doesn’t make sense. The person is his leadership.

      Apparently, the Trump effect renders people unable to coherently think.

      Nelson Banuchi you are just wrong 🙂 The person is his leadership except if that person is Trump
