  • In the October 2001 General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, then President Gordon B. Hinckley said, “The terrible forces of evil must be confronted and held accountable for their actions.” Too bad our current US President doesn’t feel the same way.

    How is ISIS different than the Roman Empire? Or the US? Governments are always established by conquering territory and plenty of violence. And God—at least the deity the author of Romans worshiped—is just fine with that.

    Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience. This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.
