God tells us to obey our leaders because they are put there by God. Romans 13

13 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.

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:

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.

5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.

6 For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.

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.

8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.

9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.

12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.

14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

[@889684,Carazaa] make sure to obey the antichrist next and his mark of the best
Carazaa · F
[@537009,MrsFugger1]I already rejected Satan, and I know his schemes! Resist the devil and he will flee!
MissFugger · F
[@889684,Carazaa] so what about the chip that you said doesn't matter, in another post
Shpiders · 18-21
Does that count for all leaders? Like did God stick Hitler in charge of Germany back in the day? Did He send Pol Pot to the top of the pile? Is it just leaders of sovereign states or is it any leader? So many questions, religion is weird when you come at it from this authority angle rather than just spiritual stuff.

[@1387,Zeusdelight] Christians must do what Jesus says. Anything unethical or unloving we must never do. Regardless of the consequences.
Zeusdelight · 56-60, M
[@889684,Carazaa] So you have a Masters of Science and a Masters of Art and you didn't once do anything unethical or unloving in completing all of the study leading to the enrollment in the Masters; Courses or the Courses themselves
Carazaa · F
[@1387,Zeusdelight] Not that I am aware of! Being kind is important to me because it makes God happy and it is the right thing to do because people are hurting in the world. I try to make it better.
He also said don’t follow false prophets
Carazaa · F
[@327405,TheScissoring] Absolutely, we are to follow Jesus.

"let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light."
God does say to obey corrupt leaders
Allelse · 31-35, M
So Hitler was in power by God? And all those communist leaders who aren't religious, God put them in power too?
Sharon · F
[@589276,Entwistle] If the leaders of every country are appointed by the same entity, why do they go to war with each other? Surely they would all agree on everything. It seem we're all set up to kill each other by an omnibenevolent god.

[@589276,Entwistle] [quote]A God sends himself to earth to die ...[/quote]
As I just said, christianity makes no sense at all.
Entwistle · 51-55, M
[@379861,Sharon] Indeed. Also why would we even bother to have elections?

Carazaa · F
[@679553,RedFlower] What's happening in your life that you are upset about? I care a lot about you please tell me what happened?
Entwistle · 51-55, M
[@679553,RedFlower] She's talking out of her arse not her mind.
Carazaa · F
[@589276,Entwistle] Pardon?
Two points:
1. Paul wasn't always right.
2. Thank goodness the Founding Fathers didn't accept King George III as God's choice. Same for any other leader overthrown for good reason.
Entwistle · 51-55, M
Did God tell people to obey King Herod and kill babies?
Harriet03 · 41-45, F
When you see the absurdity of a God,
You cannot unsee it!!

God sent Hitler?!!!!!!!
You are insane.....
Please don't have children.
🤦‍♀️

[@763897,Harriet03] God warned the Jews 3000 years ago that if they went after other gods he would scatter them among the nations, and those nations would hate and kill them. And in the end times they would get their land back. It is the number a prophesy that is undeniable and has happened. Jesus is coming very soon. Please take the Bible serious.
Harriet03 · 41-45, F
[@889684,Carazaa] Which version? There's lots of them!!
Carazaa · F
[@763897,Harriet03] They all say the same, and Jesus rose in all of them, and he says he is coming back.
ammelee2 · F
He said
when one person reign over another
there will always be discontent
do not revolt against the rulers of satans world..
behave yourself
so people can distinguish my people
by their actions
all that happens in this world,
He is allowing untill
the time is right to step in ...

remember
Gods laws comes first
and if the government laws contradict those
you cannot comply to mans law
Carazaa · F
[@1150012,skanghagha] 👍
MissFugger · F
So when the antichrist comes you will obey him because he is put there by God?
Carazaa · F
[@537009,MrsFugger1] His cheep hear his voice!
