"Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities . . . Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor. Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law. . . . clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature." - Romans 13:1, 7-8, 14
"Abide in me . . . If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love . . . This is my commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you." - John 15:4, 10, 12
"This aggression will not stand, man!" - The Dude
These quotes sum up quite well my response to Obamacare.
Obama is not the antichrist.
He is not going to destroy America.
Just abide in Christ.
"The dude abides."
Our message should not be STOP OBAMA
Our message should be LOVE
This aggression will not stand.
You don't agree with what the president is doing? You're just going to have to deal with it.
I have to put up with the fact that this country is run by politicians, and that fact drives me crazy sometimes.
Just abide in Christ.
Matthew was a tax collector and Simon was a zealot. They disagreed on what direction their government should take, but their primary concern was being a disciple of Christ and abiding in him. Do the same.
How do you abide in Christ? Love.
Ask yourself, "What would Jesus do?" and then ask yourself "Did Jesus ever try to stop the government? Did Jesus concern himself with the affairs of a fallen government?" If you think he did, you need to read the gospels again.
All politicians are sinful men anyway. Not one of them has the perfect, divine plan for America.
This is a fallen world, expect fallen results.
Read the above quotes again.
Christ wants to save this country from the inside out. So love like Jesus.
