We do not intend to change the Bible. If people wish to use the word power in place of exousia they may do so, but their thinking must remain in accord with Paul’s meaning when they choose one of the many definitions of the word power in the English dictionary. At least one of them means the power to choose.

God desires that every man should be a free soul under Him directly, having that divinely endowed right of choice unimpaired. He, like Paul, desires that we not go under the “power” of any. Paul even proclaims that he will not go under the authority of any in 1 Corinthians 6:12154 and uses the Greek word exousiazo ( exousiazw ). What he is saying is that he will not give away his right to choose to another but chooses to remain at liberty.

We already know that governments derive their power from consent and we are told in the Bible to consent not.155

Most people consent and bind themselves with constructive contracts which God told us not to do in Exodus 23:32, 34:12-15. God not only prohibited us from making covenants with inhabitants where we go, but also warned us that it would be a snare that would make us have to bow down and serve their ruling judges instead of God. He also warned us against eating of those things that had been sacrificed to those ungodly institutions.156 To eat of his sacrifice means to accept those “bounties, donations, and benefits”.

Give us this day our daily bread.” Matthew 6:11

Our daily bread should only come by faith, hope, and charity. It is those tables of kings and princes that snare the people.157
