Being under Authority.

It seems today, that obeying authority is passe’. All you have to do is watch the news. There is more killing then ever before. It is because there is no respect for life. Moses, a prince of Egypt, was arrested and put on trial because he killed a man. Throughout the ages, anyone who killed anyone was put to death. the exception has been in the last 70 years, where the laws have changed. Now it is fashionable to rehabilitate murders. People don’t trust or believe authority. It seems that our government has made laws that border on insanity, plastic straws. But God doesn’t excuse lawlessness. He is very specific about obeying authority. There is no scripture that says we can disobey authority, because they have gone crazy. God says to pray that we might lead a quiet and peaceable life. The power of prayer can reach any courtroom or congress. Our obedience isn’t about winning or losing any political race. It is about being right with God. God would rather that we obey than anything else on this earth. For God says, that our leaders are ministers of God for our good. We should pray and obey for our own sake.
