CEDAR CITY, Utah—Speeding may not be in the Bible. But a Church of Christ minister says traffic laws are God’s laws and must be enforced. Police have received complaints about Alfred Pehl jumping in front of fast cars in his neighborhood, sticking brooms in their way and backing his own car in front of other drivers.

He denies the allegations but was ticketed this week for disorderly conduct.

“We appreciate citizens getting involved in stuff, but they can’t take it to the extreme,” Cedar City police Sgt. Jerry Womack.

Pehl said people who complain about him and deny they are speeders are sinners.

“If we don’t obey the law of the land, then God will hold us accountable. The laws here in this land are His laws, not man’s laws,” the minister said.

What an ass. I suppose God wrote the constitution aswell? And that the Scotland Act 1998 is in fact 200 new commandments? Maybe we should strictly obey the Declaration of Arbroath.

Well…Render unto Caesar!  It actually does say in the bible that you’re supposed to do stuff like pay taxes & all that…so why not obey the speed limit, too?

Romans 13:1-3:
“Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you.”

Or in Latin (Vulgate Bible):
“OMNIS ANIMA POTESTATIBUS SUBLIMIORIBUS SUBDITA SIT NON EST ENIM POTESTAS NISI A DEO QUAE AUTEM SUNT A DEO ORDINATAE SUNT. ITAQUE QUI RESISTIT POTESTATI DEI ORDINATIONI RESISTIT QUI AUTEM RESISTUNT IPSI SIBI DAMNATIONEM ADQUIRUNT. NAM PRINCIPES NON SUNT TIMORI BONI OPERIS SED MALI VIS AUTEM NON TIMERE POTESTATEM BONUM FAC ET HABEBIS LAUDEM EX ILLA.”

[quote author=“Wikipedia”]Christian anarchism is a synthesis of anarchist theory with Christian theology. It may be summarized as a belief that the only source of authority to which humans are ultimately answerable is God, as embodied in the teachings of the Bible.

Yeah, ‘cuz that Romans 13 jive is, like totally ambiguous man!

In essence that’s really no more than an argument for the Divine Right of Kings. At that time ‘Authorities’ meant ‘Monarchy’ so it’s really just a way of saying that the King is appointed by God, which has been long abandonned. The current situation is totally different with us, the common man, governing ourselves, so I’d take that bit with a pinch of salt.

‘Rulers hold no terror for those who do right’? Aye, right. That’s a load of rubbish that is tongue wink This bit was probably put in to encourage slavish devotion to the King.

But we still have governing authorities.  Kings & Queens, Presidents, Prime Ministers…All governing, yes?

Why are all laws God’s laws?  Is he just taking credit for the hard work of others?
