Using the backdrop of some accusing Christians as being weak in faith for not storming Terri Schaivo's hospice in order to free her from the tyranny of the State, do you think the fight for freedom starting the Revolutionary War was commanded from Scripture. Surely, it was ordained by God in His Providence, but I'm not convinced it was fought on the grounds of being obedient to His Word. I somewhat take it as men meant it for evil, whereas God meant it for good .

Any opinions?

There is a very big difference between the two situations you sited.

The Revolutionary War was an act of legal authority, which as I recall is proper according to "Lex Rex". The same could possibly be argued for Gov. Bush sending in state troopers against court orders. This is different from individuals acting against the decree of the courts.
