bible readGenesis 12:2-3 does not command blind, unquestioning, knee-jerk support for everything the modern state of Israel does.

Matthew 22:21 does not command us to render unto to Caesar everything he demands and then just sit down and shut up.

Romans 13:1-7 does not command blind, unquestioning obedience to secular authority.

I Timothy 2:1-2 does not command us to never criticize or rebuke earthly leaders.

There are plenty more passages that Christians almost always misinterpret. However, my specialty is the world of Scripture as it pertains to political life. And these are the “Big Four” that Christians get wrong over and over again.

About Food for the Thinkers

My name is Doug Newman. I live in Aurora, Colorado, just outside Denver. Food for the Thinkers is mostly about the connection between Christianity and libertarianism. Most Christians do not understand libertarianism. And most libertarians do not understand Christianity. Hopefully, this blog helps clear up those misunderstanding. Check out my old page at And remember: When you let people do whatever they want, you get Woodstock. But when you let governments do whatever they want, you get Auschwitz.
