Ecclesiastes 10:16 Woe to thee, O land, when thy king is a child, and thy princes eat in the morning!
Isaiah 3:4 And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.
Isaiah 3:12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.
[I might be seeing this wrong, but I believe these verses describe many of our elected officials this very day! You can definitely see childish minds at work. Just watch the news any day of the week. Reminds me of the ones recently elected and sworn in].
We elected them and we are subject to them! Romans 13:1-7.
Romans 13:1 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.
[Submit to government authorities, because all authority comes from God, and those in position of authority have been placed there by God. (Titus 3:1, I Peter 2:13-17, do it for the Lord's sake), Obey the laws of our government and you will have freedom of religion, plus many more freedoms. Be a good citizen and bring forth God's Word, not your opinion. The lawmakers are here to protect those who are doing good and can protect you to further God's Word. Are the lawmakers misguided sometimes? More than likely. Am I saying you have to be a doormat and let people walk all over you? No way. A true child of God is not a wimp. Do things according to God's word. It is not a good idea to display violent, physical opposition toward government authorities. Try opposing our government or Police and see what happens].
