A good government wields the sword for its people

Criterion: The government needs to be a good government

The government is given the right to kill to protect its people from evil as in:

Romans 13

For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.  -kjv

For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil  -nkjv

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.  -niv

For government is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, because it does not carry the sword for no reason. For government is God’s servant, an avenger that brings wrath on the one who does wrong.  -hcsb

  1. Our US Government Leaders will not kill anyone the way I see events going on to downgrade us and our country. If we were being invaded by Russia I currently have my doubts if Obama would try to protect us and declare war to attempt to save people and our country. Obama does not know and therefore never follows God’s Bible.
