At the same time, the nature of civil (and other) authorities is at all times and in all things limited by the word of God. Civil authorities are specifically spoken of as ministers of God, and the word translated as “minister” is in the Greek our English word “deacon,” meaning servant. “Rulers” are thus to be servants under God, not lords or sovereigns. When the civil authorities divorce themselves from God and His law-word, they become self-styled lords and lawless as well. As Augustine pointed out, godless civil rulers are no more than bands of robbers, a more powerful Mafia, and a more dangerous one. Being lawless in relation to God, they are lawless and predatory in relation to men. (p.85)
