- Posting Psalm 109:8 on social media and in the windows of their cars.
- Posting “doctored” pictures to make President and Michelle Obama appear to use the wrong hand during the pledge of allegiance
- I’ve heard and seen “Christ-Followers” call him “an idiot” & the “O-blunder”
The list of “Christian rebellion”is long & wrong. These actions are not Christ-like. If we justify them.. we disagree with Jesus, Paul, Peter and the entirety of scripture. It is never acceptable to dishonor and rebel against any level of authority.Although Caesar was corrupt and the Roman oppression of the Jews was wrong, JESUS SAID to them, “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.” -Mark 12:17 PAUL SAID: “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2 Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, -Romans 13:1-2 He is God’s servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. 5 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience. 6 This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. 7 Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.” -Romans 13:4-7 PETER SAID: “…fear God, honor the king” -1 Peter 2:17 Research the authorities Paul and Peter were under when writing their words. Remembering what Nero and other authorities were like…should make us very grateful for our the authority we live under now. We need to honor our president. Barak H. Obama is our president and he needs us to pray for him. PERIOD.
