What is a Christian’s Responsibility in a Democratic-Republic?

Things were easier for believers under a king, in some ways.  Romans 13 and a lot of other Scriptures fit right into what a believer’s responsibility is in that type of government– God says that He directs the heart of the king, that our job is to submit to them, and that they reward righteousness.  We’re to pray for them and give them the taxes they put forth.

Setting aside the question of whether the Revolutionary War was just according to the Bible, the system that the founders of this nation set forth for our national government require involvement and regular, bloodless revolutions.

So believers are both the ones that are to submit and the ones to vote for the rulers to submit to, which leaves them in an awkward spot.
