Punishing Evildoers

[Update: Chuck Baldwin interviews Greg Dixon on Romans 13 here]

Steve Scott's third installment on the most abused chapter of the Bible (also see parts one and two). Excerpt:
Romans 13 limits the duty of civil authorities to one thing only: execution of justice. Note that the Scripture does not say "devoting themselves to not only this, but to thousands of other things, all of which you are taxed to death for." Punishment of evildoers is the state's only legitimate biblical concern. Not only this, but the passage also limits collection of taxes to this one function: "for because of this you also pay taxes." All other taxes are biblically illegitimate.
