Romans 13:1 is an interesting verse. It says, “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.”
Proverbs 12:22 says, “Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who deal truthfully are His delight.”
Is there a contradiction?
A superficial look would say yes, but a deeper study reveals something else. But first another question. God’s grace used to hoover over America. Why has it failed in the last decade?
The lock to the answer. When our forefathers first came to this land they made a covenant with Almighty God. In return for the Pilgrim’s devotion and obedience to His instruction they would receive protection and prosperity. That is how a covenant works. That protection endured two World Wars, a Civil War, and rumors of wars. It also endured 43 presidents. Until a willful and arrogant Man rose from the sea and broke that covenant for the sake of popularity. As a result of his eight years, America no longer has a prayer.
The key in the lock. To paraphrase: “God’s favor is toward a wise leader, but His wrath is against him who endorses shame.”
The symptoms of failure are visible every night on the evening news. Cities are degrading into chaos, bankruptcy is overtaking farms, bakeries and churches are attacked by liberalism, young people are failing in life and resorting to violence, livestock has been sickened with mad cow disease and bird flu, homes are unsafe, streets and sidewalks worse, confusion reigns in D.C. and in liberal colleges, the job market is collapsing, a new disease or plague hits this nation every year, race riots and outrage are present in every city, reports of mold and mildew are at all-time highs, drought takes over more land each year, crops are destroyed, America is the laughing stock of Europe, terrorist rule, STDs are rampant, addictions to drugs alcohol record levels, adultery is celebrated, human trafficking thrives, foreign governments are buying up businesses and lands, churches are dying and truth has been supplanted by liberal idols of wood and stone, and your sons and daughters are being lost to perversion and what God calls abomination.
So what happened to God’s grace? All of the above is a paraphrase of Deuteronomy 28:15-36, the curse that results when a covenant is broken. When a covenant is broken a price must be paid. That is one of God’s spiritual laws and cannot be ignored.
A Sodomite in the Oval Office edited God’s word to suit his own ideology and the crap is hitting the fan.
