Government: The Minister of God?

Rom 13:3  For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
Rom 13:4  For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
Rom 13:5  Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.
Rom 13:6  For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God’s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.
Rom 13:7  Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.

That’s right!  You read it for yourself from the Word of God.  Rulers and government officials are God’s ministers to “execute wrath upon him that doeth evil”.  God has ordained government to preserve goodness and righteousness in the land so that men may live peaceably among one another.That is why participating in the electoral process is so critical in preserving righteousness in our nation.  You can sit around and pass chain emails trashing the administration all you want to, but if you want to make a real difference, register to vote, educate yourself on the issues, and go vote!  Do you want to know how a super-minority of less than 3% of Americans, known as homosexuals, have been able to challenge the definition of family, acquire a presence on most major networks, and make YOUR views concerning their “lifestyle” appear as bigoted, homophobic, and hatred?  One word:  ACTIVISM!

That’s right!  They have a cause they believe is worth fighting for and they have invested their time, money, and labor for this cause.  Would to God, there would be a revival of Christian activism within our country that claims to be 75% Christian.  God ordained government for the preservation of society and righteousness and if our country continues on its downward spiral into Godlessness, it will be because Christians have allowed it.

Now let me encourage you to quit whining about how horrible things are and GO VOTE!  Don’t fail your country nor the institution that God Himself ordained! MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
