This is just one of my NOT SO crazy thoughts:
If you preach democrat/republican/party politics in the name of Jesus, if you hate/lover Bush, Obama, Clinton, Reagan..etc and attach the name of Jesus are you rebelling against GOD’S Authority? I say YES! When did we become the bully and I do mean BULLY pulpit for deciding political matters and who should and should not be in authority in the name of God?
Do we REALLY believe that BIBLE???
Romans 13:1 says…. “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.”
If we are brandishing our political biases and claiming they are sanctioned by God are we NOT rebelling against God Himself? Are we not saying that God doesn’t know what He’s doing and we know and can do better?
I am not always enamored with those in authority or their actions… but I’ll tell you what… I pray for ALL of them, while trusting that God is the ultimate authority and He is certainly in control. I have served this country as soldier and a cop… but I have ALWAYS pledged my Allegiance to GOD! Flags don’t save folks; that’s Jesus’ role
