Ah, no. Governments are to be respected partly because, as a by-product of keeping society intact, they curtail the ability of the dredges to do evil.

If God wanted governments to fully enforce every moral 'code,' then the government would have the responsibility of overseeing Christian evangelizing - an idea not found in the Bible, at least not to my knowledge.

Nonsense.

Guess you think that unless the govt makes every person become a born again Christian it should not have the authority to enforce moral laws against murder, stealing etc?
