Act 23:5 Then said Paul, I wist not, brethren, that he was the high priest: for it is written, THOU SHALT SPEAK NO EVIL OF THE RULER OF THY PEOPLE OR Jude 1:8

Does Romans 12:14 BLESS AND CURSE NOT. apply for us today?
It all really gets down to a Passage that NOBODY really believes beyond the casual "Mental assent" level - It's NOT "Inside truth" - Heart truth.

Eph 6:
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

The problem, of course, is that "Flesh and Blood" are physically PRESENT. The Islamic zealot that cuts your head off for the "glory of Allah" is there as big as life and twice as ugly, but the Demonic entity that DRIVES the poor fool to commit his atrocities isn't. Same goes for "Aunt Jane", and her vicious personality, and sharp tongue.

The REAL ISSUE - the "Principalities and Powers" are invisible, and find it expeditious to remain so. And so if we're going to BE "angry", then "Flesh and Blood" are our obvious targets.

The OTHER issue is the "Babel effect". THE LAST THING that we'd want NOW is a UNIFIED Visible Church possessing actual POLITICAL power in it's present state of ignorant flesh-driven infancy. Consider how "Christ like" the Romanist Church was when it had armies, and political clout. There will come the time when the MATURE Church of Ephesians 4 will exist. BUT all we've got now are world wide warring factions - lot's of "Building blocks" - but no "Building".
