Commited to Submission (40)

The modern church cannot challenge the false doctrine of submission to the state, because it needs to control people. Church leaders want submissive church members, so they have to take a staunch view of submission. Since they have a vested in total submission, they are blind to problems with the traditional interpretation of submission to governing authority. As long as church leaders push submission to their leadership, they will be powerless to oppose submission to political powers (even though the latter are hostile to God).

Only Christians with a radical view of the church will be able to take a radical view of the state.  Those who cannot cope with a radical church will tend to be happy with state domination.
