Subject: What strikes me as interesting about that scripture isn't the obedience to higher powers part, but the "there is no power but of God" part.

In reply to: Biblically Challenged 's message, "Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Romans 13:1" on 20:17:42 01/02/03 Thu

This is consistent with a monistic worldview, with pantheistic or panentheistic implications. There can be no warring dualities under such a worldview, such as those commonly viewed as taking place between God and Satan. God is only playing with Itself.
