The Sunday Message

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.Romans 13:1 (NIV)

It probably causes deep pain and discomfort to some folks who read Romans 13:1. Some people interpret Romans 13:1 as saying that anyone who is in authority has been basically appointed to that position by God.

I guess that passage causes misery to those who dislike Barack Obama, or to those who dislike George W. Bush.

I can already hear some holier-than-thou people saying, “My God would not allow XXXX to be President.”

Relax folks. God is in control.

We may not understand what God does right now, but I believe we will.

Although we may not understand all of what God does, one has to believe that with some people who have been placed in authority, God does have a great sense of humor…
