Not being in charge is a consequence of the fall. Wanting to be in charge, but not under God, is a cause of the fall. Both are manifestations of disorder. Right order was having dominion in right relationship and submission to God. (Anything with the prefix 'dis' is bad news - unsurprising because Dis was the Roman god of the underworld!!)
Making a theology out of submission to the world is disorder. Yoder's appears to me to be out of order!! Jesus/Yeshua came to restore God's order through His obedience so that, as head of the church and FOR the church, all the principalities and powers were rightfully brought back under His people. His people comprise Israel and the aliens who receive citizenship in Christ.
Has Yoder not read Ephesians 1-3?!!
