An interesting case of misapplying Scripture

The old movie ‘Its a mad mad, mad mad world’ popped into my head as I read Chuck Baldwin’s bizarre reasonings for why State secession is biblical.


“The right of State secession is rooted and grounded in the Word of God”

Did the Holy Spirit not inspire the New Testament writer to say, “Now all these things [Old Testament history] happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come”? (I Corinthians 10:11 KJV)

The last time I checked, the Holy Bible contained 66 Books, not 27; and Jehovah’s introduction of civil government in the Old Testament is replete with examples of State secession.

Did God not separate the nations at the Tower of Babel in Genesis chapter 11? He certainly did. In fact, the goal of global union was first attempted at Babel. At this point, it was God, Himself, Who was the sponsor of “State separation.”

  1. How sad to read this. These examples of misinterpreting and misapplying the Holy Word of God are why the church is so mixed up today.
    This world is not our home. Abraham is one example for us as explained in Hebrews 11:8-10,13-16. Nowhere do we see Paul revolting against Rome. He set the example for us claiming “this world is not my home”. Jesus is our example John 18:36 “….My kingdom is not of this world, if My kingdom were of this world, then my servants would fight…”.
    The scriptures tell Christians to be in subjection to their respective governments Romans 13. This is not a call to patriotism.If we try to legislate morality, we essentially become subject to ourselves. 2Corinthians4:4 tells us that satan is the “god of this world”.
