10-31-2017 Government Without God

“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God” (Romans 13:1 NKJV). When government personnel think that authority is within them, and that they are the source of law, then citizens are under a tyranny. When government bans the mention of God from its properties; bars God’s Book, the Bible, from its educational institutions; and bears down on believers; it has forgotten Who gave it authority! The resurrected Jesus Christ “has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him” (1 Peter 3:22 NKJV). Government without recognizing God’s authority is God-less! ” Mercy and truth preserve the king, And by lovingkindness he upholds his throne” (Proverbs 20:28 NKJV).
