    Chapter XXIII: Of the Civil Magistrate

    1. God, the supreme Lord and King of all the world, hath ordained civil magistrates, to be, under him, over the people, for his own glory, and the public good: and, to this end, hath armed them with the power of the sword, for the defense and encouragement of them that are good, and for the punishment of evildoers (Rom 13:1–4; 1 Pet 2:13–14).

    2. It is lawful for Christians to accept and execute the office of a magistrate, when called thereunto (Gen 41:39–43; Neh 12:26; 13:15–31; Dan 2:48–49; Prov 8:15–16; Rom 13:1–2, 4): in the managing whereof, as they ought especially to maintain piety, justice, and peace, according to the wholesome laws of each commonwealth (Ps 2:10–12; 1 Tim 2:2; Ps 82:3–4; 2 Sam 23:3; 1 Pet 2:13); so, for that end, they may lawfully, now under the new testament, wage war, upon just and necessary occasion [or, occasions] (Luke 3:14; Rom 13:4; Matt 8:9–10; Acts 10:1–2; Rev 17:14, 16).

    3. Civil magistrates [or The civil magistrate (English editions)] may not assume to themselves [or himself (English editions)] the administration of the Word and sacraments; or the power of the keys of the kingdom of heaven (2 Chr 26:18; Matt 18:17; 16:19; 1 Cor 12:28–29; Eph 4:11–12; 1 Cor 4:1–2; Rom 10:15; Heb 5:4); or, in the least, interfere in matters of faith (John 18:36; Mal 2:7; Acts 5:29; Eph 4:11–12). Yet, as nursing fathers, it is the duty of civil magistrates to protect the church of our common Lord, without giving the preference to any denomination of Christians above the rest, in such a manner that all ecclesiastical persons whatever shall enjoy the full, free, and unquestioned liberty of discharging every part of their sacred functions, without violence or danger (Isa 49:23; Rom 13:1–6). And, as Jesus Christ hath appointed a regular government and discipline in his church, no law of any commonwealth should interfere with, let, or hinder, the due exercise thereof, among the voluntary members of any denomination of Christians, according to their own profession of belief (Ps 105:15; Acts 18:14–16). It is the duty of civil magistrates to protect the person and good name of all their people, in such an effectual manner as that no person be suffered, either upon pretense of religion or infidelity, to offer any indignity, violence, abuse, or injury to any other person whatsoever: and to take order, that all religious and ecclesiastical assemblies be held without molestation or disturbance (2 Sam 23:3; 1 Tim 2:1–2; Rom 13:4).

    4. It is the duty of people [or the people] to pray for magistrates (1 Tim 2:1–2), to honor their persons (1 Pet 2:17), to pay them tribute and other dues (Matt 22:21; Rom 13:6–7), to obey their lawful commands, and to be subject to their authority, for conscience’ sake (Rom 13:5; Tit 3:1). Infidelity, or difference in religion, doth not make void the magistrates’ just and legal authority, nor free the people from their obedience to them [or to him] (1 Pet 2:13–14, 16): from which ecclesiastical persons are not exempted (Rom 13:1; 1 Kgs 2:35; Acts 25:9–11; 2 Pet 2:1, 10–11; Jude 8–11), much less hath the pope any power and jurisdiction over them in their dominions, or over any of their people; and, least of all, to deprive them of their dominions, or lives, if he shall judge them to be heretics, or upon any other pretense whatsoever (Mark 10:42–44; Matt 23:8–12; 2 Thess 2:4; 2 Tim 2:24; 1 Pet 5:3; Rev 13:15–17).

    Congrats AMR, very well said
    <a href=http://theologyonline.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=23146&d=1455650224 target=_blank>http://theologyonline.com/attachment...6&d=1455650224</a>

    "Around the country, progressive bullies have attacked Christians for daring to put their faith ahead of the pet causes of those who feign compassion while destroying life-giving liberties. What we are seeing is a scorched-earth, take-no-prisoners approach as the wildfire burns across our land. It is not enough that Christians be quiet. Christians must be silenced and punished. Their faith cannot be respected. Legislation that ensures people are free to live and work according to their faith without fear of being punished by government must be stopped and decried as discrimination...There is one key reason that those on the Left must force their beliefs on the rest of us: if they didn't force their craziness on us, we would never embrace it." ~Erick Erickson
