I find conspiracy nuts are either a lot of fun or a total bore. It depends on the subject and my mood. So I ask you, “Is the deep state out to get you?” As a general rule do you drive around worried about the black helicopters descending on you and the Department of Agriculture SWAT team taking you into custody at gun point? Do you at least have a concern about the local cop sitting in a speed trap? You are not necessarily paranoid. They may be out to get you.
According to this verse the government, the “king” (4428) really is out to get you. God sends the word to Samuel when they demanded a king. It starts with this verse,
(1Sa 8:9 KJV) Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.It goes down hill from there. You can read that on your own.
According to Paul the government is instituted by God and has a purpose. That does not mean that it will always be your friend.
So? Be a good citizen but don’t fall into the nonsense of Big Government being you daddy.
