The first new commandment, repent to the Lord your God, for He will show mercy and compassion to your iniquities, is a common theme found in the prophetic books of the Hebrew Bible. The book of Hosea, for example, is “designed to call upon Israel to return to the Lord” (New Interpreters’ Study Bible, Sweeny 1256).

However, Christians are called and compelled to submit to authority, but it is a voluntary response out of obedience to God’s Word. Romans were forced to submit to the state because the gods controlled their fate. Therefore, a Christian’s duty to the state stems from a commitment to the Lord, not out of compliance to fate.
