Christian Anarchism

So I've been reading a bit about Christian anarchism.

One of the main reasons for their anarchistic views is that they interpret Matthew 6:24 (No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.) to mean that no man can serve both god and government. If you're a Christian you have to accept god as an authority, which means that you have to stop having any other masters.

[url=]Jesus was an Anarchist[/url] is a pretty good read.

[url=]Christian Anarchism: An Oxymoron?[/url] is an objection to CA.

And there's Jewish Anarchists too.

And guess what? There's [url=]Buddhist Anarchism[/url] also. They're anarchosocialists who believe that the Buddha's teachings that people should give up their property if they want peace, applies to government also, and therefore it would mean peace if government gave up ownership of property.

It's pretty interesting how they interpret the teachings to mean anarchistic views.
