Relating to state government within its sphere of authority

In relating to government it is good to recognize the sphere of influence given to them from God. The state has no jurisdiction over religious matters, or anything affecting the first four commands of the Ten Commandments. In the story of the conflict Christ was having with the Jewish leaders that end up before Pilate, it was a conflict outside of the jurisdiction of the state and was not supposed to be brought before a secular ruler. Whether or not Christ is the Son of God, is not an issue a secular government has any business deciding, because it does not have any relationship to individual dealings with his fellow human being (the limited sphere of secular government).
John 19:10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?
19:11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power [at all] against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.
19:12 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.
Discussion question:
What are your thoughts on issues relating to civil wars, and sedition?
