There is an interesting discussion going on at DebatingChristianity.com on Christian Anarchism. It's not talking about Christian chaos, but a political theory in which no governmental structure exists from a Christian perspective. I've never really considered true Anarchism a viable political model. And I've never met a Christian that supported this idea. So, it's very interesting to be able to learn more about it and debate it's merits.

Anarchism - a political theory that aims to create a society which is without political, economic or social hierarchies (also called libertarian socialism, libertarian communism). Anarchist FAQ

Christian Anarchist - "One who turns the other cheek, overturns the tables of the moneychangers, and does not need a cop to tell him how to behave. A Christian anarchist does not depend upon bullets or ballots to achieve his ideal; he achieves that ideal daily by the One-Man Revolution with which he faces a decadent, confused, and dying world." Catholic Worker

One interesting point in Anarchy: A Judeo-Christian Legacy is that power cannot be safely wielded without corrupting the person in power, just like the ring in the Lord of the Rings. Even Jesus himself did not want a position of power while on earth. Why should men want position of power then?

Anyways, this is all very new to me and quite interesting to think about.
