A ruler is the most powerful being on the planet.  Kings are perceived as the lieutenants to God, but they are more than that.  God also addresses Kings as gods themselves.  Kings are compared to gods, fathers and the head of the human body.

Kings, like gods bear the right to exercise divine power on earth.  God holds the power to create or destroy as he sees fit.  He can raise low things or lower high things.  He is above criticism, for he has no equal.  Like wise, Kings can make and unmake their subjects.  Kings can promote a knight, or demote him to a serf and banish him.  Kings are the supreme judges of their land.  They are not to be judged by their lower subjects, for Kings are held accountable to God alone.

Kings are akin to fathers.  Fathers hold the power of life and death over their children and family.  A father will divide his inheritance among his loyal children.  A King also holds the power of life and death over his subjects, and rewards fealty.

Lastly, Kings are like the head of the natural body.  The head directs all other parts of the body.  It will cut off corrupt members or let blood to purge disease.  This power was given to the head by God.  Kings control all aspects of the state.  They execute treasonous subjects and were given this power by God.

But in the modern times, there is a distinction between the original Kings and the current Kings.  The original Kings claimed their power through conquest or popular election.  The King has become an avatar of the law.  They are bound by oath to serve and protect the people and the laws of their kingdom.  To ignore this oath leads to tyranny, which will not go unpunished by God.  In the same Psalm where God tells Kings you are gods, he immediately follows this with “but ye shall die like men” (Psalm 82:6).

In conclusion, disputing what God may do is a form of heresy.  It defies all logic and goes against divinity.  It is seditious to dispute what a King may or may not do in the height of his power.  Do not dispute the power of the King.  I (James) will try to provide ample justification for my actions, and ensure that my actions obey the laws.
