St. Paul and government

By N.T. Wright.  I’m reading this now; I plan to comment later.

Update:  In the article, Wright focuses on the idea that the Gospel preached by Paul had strong elements of political subversion in addition to the theological discussion of God’s free gift of salvation.  I really have no opinion of the article; it was interesting for what it was, but it seems to me that Wright has not divested himself of the Caesar worship that he asserts Paul wove into his salvation message.  He still seems to see a need for that fictitious entity we call “the State”.  So, there are some good ideas to glean from the article, but overall, I’m unenthused.
