Romans 13:1-5 “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience. “
While I agree that our government seems inept at times, I’m thankful that they do establish and enforce the laws in this country. This is how God protects us from each other God has established government and we, as American’s, get the opportunity to peacefully shape ours. Vote your conscience before the LORD today. God is sovereign and has established our government and still influences our government through the lives of men and women just like you.
