You're not paying attention.Because the context of the conversation isn't the governments job, it's the Christian's role in that government, and if that passage supports "Just" War Theory,
Rom 13:1-5 WEB 1 Let every soul be in subjection to the higher authorities, for there is no authority except from God, and those who exist are ordained by God. 2 Therefore he who resists the authority withstands the ordinance of God; and those who withstand will receive to themselves judgment. 3 For rulers are not a terror to the good work, but to the evil. Do you desire to have no fear of the authority? Do that which is good, and you will have praise from the authority, 4 for he is a servant of God to you for good. But if you do that which is evil, be afraid, for he doesn’t bear the sword in vain; for he is a servant of God, an avenger for wrath to him who does evil. 5 Therefore you need to be in subjection, not only because of the wrath, but also for conscience’ sake.
The only response needed from Jesus followers is submission, or yielding to government authorities.
I said one of several passages.and if that passage supports the Christian being involved in any war, even a "Just" War.
I don't think you actually know how to understand what you read.If Christians want to follow the Prince of Peace, I'm not sure how they can do it while fighting wars, and I don't think Romans 12 or 13 define the Christian's role in waging war.
I never said anything about Jesus followers waging a military war.
My comments were about fighting against evil.
There are many ways to engage in war that have absolutely nothing to do with physical violence.
I thought Martin Luther King jr. carried out an excellent war in the 50's and 60's for civil rights. He made it clear to his compatriots that violence was not acceptable and forbade them from practicing violence.
With the exception of BLM, and Antifa, the communists here in the United states have not used physical violence. They are now using cancel culture and the education system to promote their beliefs and have for decades.
So, talking about warfare and saying Christian involvement in warfare is a joke.
I'm sure that is exactly what you want. This is known as tyranny. The United states of America was initiated as an opposition to what you would argue.I would argue the Christian should not be particularly involved in the affairs of the governments of earthly kingdoms, because their kingdom is not of this world, and the one they supposedly follow seemed to have no interest in being involved in earthly government.
I'd say that you should take the time to learn, but you're not willing to learn the simplest lessons, so I doubt you'd be willing to do this.
No worries though. You just showed me that the communists and socialists are succeeding in their war.
Keep the people ignorant, and teach them lies, claiming those lies are in fact the truth.
So, congratulations! You are a casualty of the cold war.
Irritating that you cannot control others with what you want isn't it!"Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?"
Jesus answered, "I tell you, not seven times, but up to the point where you can no longer tolerate their asinine behavior.
And?It works by being willing die to follow and obey your leader, even death on a cross.
Exactly. You don't understand.I don't think it's a good thing. I just don't understand how you can call yourself a follower of Jesus, and claim the Bible as your instruction manual but be so willing to blow any other human's brains out.
Ever wonder why?
Did it ever occur to you that you are so filled with biases and preconceptions that you can't see the truth?
Then perhaps it's time for you to lose your biases and preconceptions and start reading and learning.If God doesn't want tyranny to thrive, he is more than capable of accomplishing it with out your involvement, and unless he gives you a clear command to go to war and be in a position to take the life of an image bearer, I would err on the side of caution and peace making so you don't risk finding your self before the judgement seat hearing the words "Depart from me you worker of iniquity, I never knew you". Many think they are doing Jesus' work, but he's quite clear that their are many that think they are following him but are deceived. If you want to follow the Prince of Peace, the one who died for his enemies, you may seriously want to consider how willing you are to kill your enemy instead of dying for them.
