A Thought Re: Our Political Leaders
Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers.
For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2
Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.
6 For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.
7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.
I must reread these scriptures after I listen to the news and watch cable TV. In the world it seems like rebellion against authorities is a popular thing to do, but according to the scriptures should not be done.
The sentence “For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.”
Boy, that makes you really think!
Do what you have to do - Obey God!
