No nation is sovereign; they all operate on arbitrary, made-up boundaries, and the whimsy of self-granted power. There are no borders. Christ has all nations under him, he establishes and destroys governments as he sees fit, and the kingdom to come is not one of nations. It is a kingdom of people who are bound together by Christ’s sacrifice and resurrection. It is a kingdom that is already established, and that Christians are made citizens of the moment they are saved.
So, I no longer consent to participate in a necessarily immoral institution. I am a Christian, and have been instructed by the laws of my God and King to obey the laws of the land in which I am physically present so far as they do not conflict with obligations to my God. The Romans recognized that Christ’s commands were political in nature. They understood and fought Christianity tooth and nail until they gave up and just integrated Christianity as an approved State religion.
I am a Popular Christian, or as some call it a Christarchist. I am not bound by any State or Religion but my borders are cast by the shadow of the Cross of Christ. And my fellow Christians those borders are unbounded, limitless, and cross the whole of the Universe and more… our God is great."
