Why Simply Quoting Bible Passages About Kings in Ancient Times is Not Useful
Why simply quoting Bible passages about kings in ancient times is not useful to the #DebtCeiling debate: Government was different in Bible times. This means we can't take scripture about how to relate to government literally. We must prayerfully find God's truth in it for our times. That is, we don't throw scripture out. We read it expecting the Spirit to help us discern God's word for our times. This is best done in community.
