I was talking with a friend at church. He told me with great personal conviction that Christians don’t run for Congress. That I better get out while I can. I thought about that conversation for a while and then Romans 13:1 came to mind.
“Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God.”
New Living Translation (NLT)
I thought maybe that is why America is in trouble. That Christians have abandoned their authority from God. That we need to send able leaders to Washington who fear GOD, know the TRUTH and hate dishonest gain.
