Violence can’t be allowed

    Our government cannot allow violence—whether against itself or its citizens and their properties. And sometimes drastic measures need to be taken to prevent it. Romans 13:1 in the Bible says "Everyone must submit...to the governing authorities" and v. 4 says the government "is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer."
