The US foreign policy is the most significant determinant of ISIS’ emergence. Americans thought that evil means would lead to good ends. They did not.
Instead of trotting out Romans 13 that allegedly turns Scripture against libertarians, statists should listen to Romans 3:7-6:
Someone might argue, “If my falsehood enhances God’s truthfulness and so increases his glory, why am I still condemned as a sinner?”
Why not say — as some slanderously claim that we say — “Let us do evil that good may result”? Their condemnation is just!
(When you do evil, yet God brings good out of it, it is glory to God and shame to you.)
