    As for number 7:

    Romans 13:1-2 (ESV)
    [1]Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. [2] Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment.

    As for number 5: I answered "unsure" as I don't know for sure what your question is getting at. I didn't know if to answer "most definitely" would be to agree with your dispensational premillennialism. Frankly, I have given up trying to reach any conclusion about eschatology other than believing that Jesus will come back and end this present age and that there will be a new heavens and earth. All of these hundreds, if not thousands, of different eschatological interpretations are simply too much to sort through, and I have decided there is simply no way to read the symbolic language of Scriptures and determine which, if any, of these interpretations are even close to the truth. So I am going to stick to the basics and let the rest of you argue about the details. [​IMG]
