David, that's funny. Is that FOX NEWS spin on it? Of coarse it is. But sorry, no one agrees with your version. The Hero's act has already passed....months ago. Before Trump had temporary whatever, even he wanted something to pass. But oh no, McConnell has rejected everything. Trump saw the markets drop again after he called off all negotiations, only to reverse course , not because he cares about struggling families, but THE MARKET. Mitch won't even bring it to a vote. I call that MITCH STONEWALLING.
And this idea Dems are voting for Trump because of it is made up propaganda, probably exactly how Trump wants to spin it. Did he hire some actors making this claim?
---kathr4453 on 10/24/20|
When the shoe was is on the other foot, the Democrats play the same games. If a Democrat or a Republican has a good idea, and the other party is in power, those ideas will rarely get passed, because the idea will create a political platform for their opponents to run on in the next election.
This is why Nancy Pelosi has been holding up the much needed Coronavirus relief package. The election is days away and it could sway some to vote for Republicans. Unfortunately she has held on a bit too long, and I believe she has swayed many folks needing relief to go republican.
Politicians just being Politicians.
---David on 10/24/20|
It would be nice parties worked together. Unfortunately, the Democratic House passed 400 useful bills, many with bipartisan support, gathering dust on Mitch McConell's desk. He refuses to let the Senate to consider. He doesn't even trust his own party to vote them down. He is making the decision for them.
This man can single-handedly stop any legislation that he wants, with no recourse. This is more power than even the President has, because at least if the President vetoes a bill, 2/3 of both the House and Senate can override the veto. Also, the American people have the power to replace a bad president every 4 years. McConnell's fate is dependent on the citizens of Kentucky only, and nobody else has any say in it.

Folks tend to only see the negatives about the parties they oppose. Democrats have given us many social programs for which I am very grateful, like unemployment, social security, welfare, medical care...etc.
These are all terrific programs, but they all went off the rails at some point and became something they were not meant to be. I wish both parties could have worked together to fix these existing programs, because if they did, I believe it would satisfy a large majority of constituents from both sides of the aisle.
But like it or not...reality is...full on socialism seems to be taking over your party. And I agree with you about Biden, he is old school and only pandering to the socialists.
---David on 10/23/20|
Interestingly enough, the 7 poorest countries in the world are Capitalists. Haiti being one of them. Also there are no 100% Capitalist countries, as most Capitalist countries are a mix of Capitalism and Socialism. America is labeled a mix. Canada is also labeled as a mix. Yet they would probably be considered more socialistic than the USA.
Just as we have education for all, through grade 12 FREE, or rather paid for by taxes, aka socialism, that everyone not only has a right to an education, but illegal if you're not in school under 16, healthcare should also be just as important if not more so. It's a no brainer. It doesn't lead to communism..yikes.
---kathr4453 on 10/23/20|
No two socialistic countries are exactly alike. There are so many variances. For instance, many want to compare how well Canada does under socialism. The reviews are favorable. Here's the thing, .....Canada also practices Capitalism ....so it's not completely socialistic. In Canada, ( I'm not sure if the laws have changed) no one can own property. You lease it for 99 years. No personal wealth in that way to pass down. Here in America that would NEVER happen. And like Canada We will also practice Capitalism in businesses.
So I'd be careful about giving some archaic definition of socialism, as having only one course of action.
Biden isn't even for Medicare for all. Stop the lies.
---kathr4453 on 10/22/20|
I stated earlier it's dishonest to assume Democrats are socialists. only Bernie Sanders fits that category with a few who support him. To suggest Democrats are socialists who David is scratching his head wondering how they plan to put America back together was a dishonest comment made in the form of a question.
That was David's question to me and Strongaxe. Like always these questions step off the path and always go down some rabbit hole that was never the question to begin with. There are all sorts of socialistic groups, ....those run by dictators, or tyrants, and democratic socialism, like Canada, England, Australia, etc. But I don't see Biden taking us there.
His plan for recovery will 1) HAVE A PLAN.....2 ) HAVE A PLAN

To the left, socialism is Social Democracy - people are in charge, not corporations, and government serves the people.
To the right, socialism is Communiusm - nobody owns anything, and people serve the government. Arguing apples vs. oranges never solves anything.
What "confiscation and redistribution"? Taxation is modest unless you make $400,000 a year. Before Reagan, the highest tax bracket was around 90%, which made corporations re-invest in development (rather than hoarding it now). It was the greatest period of growth in U.S. history. We went to the MOON.
Since Reagan, EVERY Republican administration caused a recession, and EVERY Democratic administration pulled us out of it.
---StrongAxe on 10/21/20|
Your not distinguishing between social programs that keep the infrastructure of a country functioning, working , and Socialism The Collective, which has never work ! tactic of the far left,
By the virtue of confiscation and redistribution there can be no freedom in socialism , No room for growth.

"Socialist" things we have in our country, without which life here would be much worse: highways, police, fire departments, air space, radio space, power and water and internet, consumer protection laws, emergency rooms, FDA to make sure food and drugs don't kill you, EPA to make sure corporations can't pollute so air and water don't kill you, minimum wage to prevent slave labor.
Without any of that, you get some of the horrors of unbridaled capitalism I mentioned in my last message.
Yes, greed can corrupt socialism (by making it less social), but greed is the very ESSENCE of Capitalism - capitalism (e.g. making people pay as much as you can possibly get them to do) is inherently corrupt.

A good society needs a mixture of both. Society means "people working together for their mutual benefit" - the essence of socialism. Capitalism is "me first", the antithesis of the Gospel.---StrongAxe
I Totally agree, and I see the plight of Socialism as honorable. But the problem, the reason that mix is impossible, is because the solution is found in the hearts of men.
For Greed is in the heart of the Rich, and the Poor. Where there is greed, there is no love. When you walk the homeless streets, you will see one man huddled in a corner, without a blanket, and one man, a few feet away, with 10 blankets. They act greedy, just like a rich man, so reversing the roles changes nothing.
---David on 10/20/20|
Well being a democrat doesn't necessarily mean one is a socialist either. I think this is the hype being rammed down everyone's throat. Oh look at Venezuela..."this will happen to us" mentality is also wrong. Labeling Democrats socialists is just as wrong as labeling Republicans racists. Yes there are racists in the GOP, and socialistic leanings in the democratic party. But to say all Republicans are racists and all Democrats are socialists is wrong.
Plus Trump was told in the beginning a second shut down would be a disaster to the economy, so if there is one Trump is to blame. He squandered precious time and mocked those trying to get it under control.
---kathr4453 on 10/19/20|
Unbridled socialism is toxic, as you described. So is unbridled capitalism. 400 years ago, Dickensian England, with workhouses and children used as slave labor. 200 years ago, actual slave labor (Plantation owners could pay slaves nothing, rather than hire workers and pay them an honest wage as the Bible demands).
Today, companies like Amazon and Walmart make trillions in profits and pay no taxes, while their workers are paid so little, they rely on public assistance (that WE pay for) in addition to their wages.
A good society needs a mixture of both. Society means "people working together for their mutual benefit" - the essence of socialism. Capitalism is "me first", the antithesis of the Gospel.
---StrongAxe on 10/19/20|
Just trying to have a constructive conversation here folks, giving you a platform. I asked a simple question about the economic plans for socialism, and out of that I am accused of everything except being a Christian.
Some ideas of Socialism I happen to like, but what many of us dont understand is the economics of it. Places where it has been tried, ended up forcing people into jobs without any hope for anything more than breathing, eating and sleeping, AKA....Government run Slavery.
I am interested in knowing if your economic plans have evolved into something which provides a little bit more than suffering through life.

You said SEE. What kind of character do you SEE in a man who violates most of the Ten Commandments, and practices most of the Seven Daily Sins? A man who claims to be Christian, yet whose actions go against almost everything Jesus ever taught? What makes you follow and defend such a man?
"All have fallen short of the glory of God", but Christians are supposed to STRIVE to follow God's laws, even though we occasionally stumble - very different continually breaking God's laws and boasting about it.
Apostles judged others for claiming to follow God's laws while not doing so. Were THEY hypocrites for doing so?
You still haven't explained why you favor euthanasia.

David's question is so disingenuous, because all this time when Trump had the power to make decisions from the top, that would have lowered this contagion, he came against everyone , governors, DR's ect who did all they could to stop it. Then seems to think because he closed airports he should be worshipped as a hero.
Trump right from the beginning LIED, as we see in the Bob Woodward tapes, PLAYED POLITICS with this, as we hear his words at a Feb 28th rally in NC that it was a democratic hoax, and on and on even now. Yet David still wants to blame what he calls socialists. Statements like that is mind boggling.

That is the attitude of Senator Kennedy of Louisiana. Let the old people die so we can get on with life. This is horrible the GOPers want to play God in who should live and die, all the while pushing through a pro life SC Justice, and then taking folks off of healthcare at the same time. The inconsistency is schizophrenia beyond words.
Dave, those who don't care if they get sick and die should be up to the individual, not the government or ones neighbor. Only a dictatorship ruler would make such a decision. YIKES.

There was ample time and money to get schools ready....and nothing happened, because Trump won't give states money for public schools.

I guess its because, If I used the Ten Commandments as a measurement to judge men, as you do, my Lord would see me as a hypocrite.
(Luke 6:37-38) Judge not, and ye shall not be judged. Condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned. Forgive, and ye shall be forgiven. Give, and it shall be given unto you: good measure, pressed down and shaken together and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete, therewith it shall be measured to you.

"I would rather see someone die quickly... than suffer..." is euthanasia, which pro-Life Christians condemn as evil and barbaric.

Like Martin Luther King, I see people by the quality of their character, and not by the color of their skin.
We apparently see death and suffering....differently. To be honest, I see Suffering to be much worse than Death. A bad economy means joblessness, which leads to homelessness, hunger and even more disease.
A very small percent of the population is being killed by this virus, but the reaction to it, these shutdowns, have caused a large percent of the world population...to suffer, and will suffer long term. I would rather see someone die quickly from this disease, than to see someone who survived the disease, to die from hunger.

The states with most COVID cases and deaths is dominated mostly by red states (governors recklessly opened without restrictions, and now reap the results), and not blue states (whose governors wisely held things back).
In Arizona, we have limited opening (bars closed, restaurants at half capacity, most other things are open, masks are strongly encouraged, and mandated by most businesses). Our infection rates are down 77%.
Democrats favor preserving human lives over the economy. Republicans favor preserving the economy over human lives. Do you value corporations or people more?

David. Firstly, you formed your question in a lie. That I find deceitful. The virus is not a socialist....yikes. And we've never faced this before except in 1918. We see that all around Europe the rise in infections, just as the scientists predicted. I believe they are discussing going back to lock-downs, not because they are promoting socialism, but promoting the saving of lives of the people and healthcare workers.
Look, when all healthcare workers end up either dead or simply overwhelmed and have to quit because of other health issues, then hospitals have to close because no one is there to run them, YEA, CAPITALISM MUST BE AT ITS BEST. People can rum a mock...and FREEDOM will reign.

Trump practices "stochstic terrorism". A leader announces displeasure against someone, and relies on fanatical followers to kill them, leaving the leader's hands clean. King Richard hated bishop Thomas a Becket, and said "Will noone rid me of this turbulent priest?" - then four knights murdered Becket.
Trump said "Liberate Michigan!". Some white nationalists planned a coup in six states, tried to kidnap Michigan governor. Did Trump denounce the terrorists? No. HE DENOUNCED THE GOVERNOR. This is the kind of "leader" we have, who thinks he has authority because he won an election, but doesn't give anyone else the same respect because they won theirs - UNLESS they agree with him. Wake up people!

Flu virus mutates constantly, so we need new vaccines for each new strain.
Most COVID deaths are a result of comorbidity. If you have lung cancer and will die within 5 years, but catch COVID and die in 3 weeks, the cause is COVID. You might have survived if you didn't have lung cancer, but you WOULD have survived FIVE YEARS without COVID. COVID is what accelerated your death, and is thus responsible for it.
A scenario they teach in first year law. If someone falls off a building and is about to hit the ground and die, and you shoot them as they fall, and kill them, YOU are guilty of murder, even if they were about to die anyway. If COVID kills you earlier than you would have died otherwise, COVID is the cause.

Nice try. The Generals noted that he had read all the briefs given him before walking in. Than spending time going over and asking questions. Yes Saturday night. But Trump plays 2 days a week for many hours. He also does not read the reports at all. Only asking for verbal synopsis. On average he watches if memory serves me 7 hours of TV a day. I looked it up. So tell me again how hard he works.
Right now he has helped spread Covid to many people in the White house. I pray none dies. But they could end up sick for the rest of their lives. Like so many who get Covid and end up with long term illnesses. But what does he care. Not in the least.

Samuel, Obama didn't JUST play golf. He played basketball, had concerts at the White House, movie theater and bowling parties. That's why people said he used the White House as a Party House. Obama worked less than 6 hours a day.
Strongaxe, herd immunity is how all contagious viruses/infections are conquered. Look at Sweden. No mask or lock down orders
Think about it? Why do we have to take a flu vaccine EVERY year? Because it isn't a vaccine. CDC calls it a vaccine to make people feel good.
BTW, even the CDC admitted at least 6500 Cov-19 deaths were actually Deaths with Cov-19. Meaning people's bodies who died in car accidents were tested for Cov-19. Then listed as a Cov-19 for Federal benefits. Numbers are disingenuous.

Ring around the rosies
Pocket full of posies
All fall down
One explanation for this children's rhyme is the Black Death. Some of the symptoms were a rosy rash, and sneezing until you fell down. Carters would make rounds through the city, calling "bring out your dead", and people would bring out dead bodies and throw them on the carts, where they would be taken away to be cremated. People kept flowers and herbs in their pockets to protect them from the plague, and from the terrible stench of the dead bodies.

Now Trump is pushing Herd Immunity.
That is how we virtually eliminated some plagues like Polio. If enough are resistant, plagues have no place to spread, like throwing a match on a pile of wet wood. We achieved this through mass vaccination (but due to anti-vaxxers, virtually extinct plagues like polio and measles are making a comeback again).
Without vaccination, at least 60% must to catch the disease and survive. Survivors will have resistance, but as about 5% who catch it die, this means before the U.S. achieves herd immunity, around THREE MILLION PEOPLE will die.
If 200,000 dead is bad, imagine FIFTEEN TIMES THAT MANY. This is what our genocidal president is proposing.

Fox is strongly right biased and rarely airs anything critical to Trump. "If Fox doesn't say it, it's a lie" is hopelessly naive. Don't rely on what ANY media outlets say. Look at TRUMP'S OWN twitter feed, or any media outlet (biased or not) that has links to it, because you can check out what he said out of his own mouth. Similar with video clips of him speaking. Or the White House's own web site for transcripts of his speeches. Sayig
Trump has not sued for libel any of the 24 women who accused him of rape, because the truth would come out. He fights tooth and nail to prevent giving a DNA sample. Why does Trump, again and again, fight tooth and nail to suppress evidence that would exonerate him, were he innocent?

And of course he is a sinner, everyone is. Then you don't like him playing golf, why not? You are just a Trump hater, and nothing he does is good enough for you.

LYING and encouraging unrest in Michigan against their Governor because she cautiously wanted to PROTECT her people in her state. It's not only that he lied, but was an evil force against caution, using it as a political attack against democratic states. ..... even down to trying to force kids back to school while it's still unsafe.

All Trump does is for HIMSELF. He ran a charity for veterans. He bkiled it for millions. They got nothing. He golfs at his own resorts and charges Secret Service top rates: he personally profits. RNC coffers are almost empty as he used their money to fund his PERSONAL lawsuits.

He was not a politician, politicians are bad to the core. We did not need someone who was going to give our country away. Everything Trump does is for us, the people.

However multitudes of people ..STUPID GOATS WHO EAT ANYTHING will still believe Bakker's nonsense and lies..re SILVER...that Covid cure ....snake oil, he probably made millions off of.

Trump openly courts evangelicals and pretends to be one, yet behind their backs ridicules their beliefs. This is the "God's Chosen" so many gullible Evangelicals believe in.
Jim Bakker said God showed him a vision of the future White House, with pictures of future presidents on the walls, all Trump's current children plus other Trumps not yet born. This is not a monarchy with hereditary kings. The level of spiritual delusion here is mind-boggling.

Samuel, I don't trust him either. Michael Cohen, although we know he's a bad guy too, probably knows that evil side of Trump more than anyone else. It's that evil EVIL side of Trump many may have never seen, because he's two faced for one, but knows how to use OTHERS to do most of his dirty work, as M Cohen is now doing time for that dirty work. On that note, I believe him when he says Trump will do anything, even start a war if need be to stay in power. If he looses, he knows he has umpteen criminal charges coming up he will have to face. If he wins, the statute of limitations involved in many charges will be past a date he goes scott free. He doesn't care about this Country or our military, ...narcissists only care about themselves.

You're exactly right Strongaxe. In spite of the evil kings, individuals are responsible for their own stand before God, and we are always being tested regardless of who is in power. Jeremiah was not a king, but prophecied against the King of Israel's and Israel's disobedience. God allowed the enemy conquer the Nation of Israel. His prophecy came to pass. It was because the enemy said Jeremiah spoke truth he was freed to leave, with only a hand full of people. We insist we are a Christian nation....OK THEN.....LETS BE CLEAR HERE...GOD WILL NOT BE MOCKED. And we have mocked on so many levels it's not funny. It's MORE than the abortion issue. 1John 4:20 .

Good point. Just look at Israel:
Of the kings of the United Kingdom, 1 good (David), 1 evil (Saul), 1 good at first but evil later (Solomon).
Of the kings of Judah, 12 evil, 6 good, 2 good at first but evil later.
Of the kings of Israel, 18 evil, 1 good at first but evil later.
And of other nations, the only good kings I can think of were Melchizedek, and Cyrus.
One may say that a leader is the one God wanted in place, but based on the above examples, it's rarely a good thing. It's definitely NOT a sign of divine approval. Look at many of the most powerful leaders of the past century or so - Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Hirohito, Mao. I doubt God approved of any of them.

Maybe. and when we see this happening THE TIME OF ANTI-CHRIST is right on its heals. WAKE UP PEOPLE.

Trump's words are public record. Videos of what he says are easy to find on any news site. He told people to vote by mail, then go to polling places. If their votes aren't tallied, vote again. In many states, they aren't tallied until after polls close, so doing so would result in double voting. NC election officials had to immediately issue a statement contradicting Trump, and warning voters that if they voted twice, they would be guilty of a felony.
I challenge you to prove your 99% statistic. I repeadly say *INNOCENT* victims. Like Breonna Taylor, MURDERED IN HER SLEEP. Prosecutors tried to bribe her boyfriend with a lighter sentence if he implicated her in drug dealing (there is no evidence she was), but he refused.

Actually ven, Trump did, and NC had to put out a disclaimer from the state that voting twice was a felony. Even after that Trump did it again in another state.
ANYONE that stupid should not be president. Trump claims to be a know it all, knows more than anyone else in the whole world, and EXPERT in every subject. SOOOOOOO, did he KNOW it was a felony, confusing folks so that it would purposely delay or mess up elections, OR is TRUMP the most stupid man on earth. Either way he is UNFIT to be President of the USA. BUT i know FOX never reports on these issues,or if they do, its so twisted and distorted to cover his stupidity.... so that is why you are ignorant on many issues.

Axe, You make accusations concerning Trump, you say "Yesterday, Trump encouraged North Carolina's to vote twice to "test" election integrity. Voting twice is a FELONY. Trump just incited citizens to commit SEVEN MILLION FELONIES.
Do you have proof? this is just your opinion, and it is slander. He never told anyone to vote twice, so you lied as you have so many times before. Everything you have accuse Trump of doing is just more fake news. You were defending all those who have been killed by cops, and 99% are thugs, criminals, rapist, and just plain trouble makers who now feel they can do anything as long as they have so call Christians like you speaking for them. Take the stake out of your eye. Chew on that.

We have 1/23 of the world population, but 1/4 of COVID deaths, 6x the world average. Trump and Kushner KNOWINGLY downplayed COVID as it initially affected mostly blue states. It was more politically expedient for Democrats to die, and blame Democrat governors. They sacrificed American lives on the altar of Trump's re-election. This came out a month ago. (Google: kushner withheld aid)
Also, when have I EVER defended "thugs and criminals"? Please provide a specific quote (words and date I said it), or it's slander.
Yesterday, Trump encouraged North Carolinans to vote twice to "test" election integrity. Voting twice is a FELONY. Trump just incited citizens to commit SEVEN MILLION FELONIES. Chew on that.

Google: how many people killed by antifa
"Trump frequently accuses the far-left of inciting violence, yet right-wing extremists have killed 329 victims in the last 25 years, while antifa members haven't killed any, according to a new study" - James Pasley, Jul 31, 2020 (BusinessInsider)
Again, provide PROOF of "thugs who murder people". Provide PROOF that Nurse supports thugs. Otherwise, your accusations are UNSUBSTANTIATED GOSSIP and SLANDER, two things the Bible condemns.
You are so full of hate at anything left, that you don't seem to care about some of God's most important rules.

Axe, you also keep protecting the thugs, and criminals, who have a long list of carrying weapons, and get shot by policeman. There is some and that is very few cops who are bad. Compare to the many who have died at the hands of criminals who are protected by people like you and Nurseroberts, Kath and mike. you are only concern on the blacks, but what about the black cops who have lost their lives? You never speak for them. What if all those wonderful guys you defend come over to your neighborhood and began breaking the windows in your car and home, and terrorize your family. are you going to go out and join them? burn your own house?

Nurse: Why are you supporting thugs who murder people and destroy other people's property?
---jerry6593 on 9/2/20|
mike, 180,000 did not die because of Trump, they died because of the virus. Trump was not out there saving people and just happened to miss 180,000.
Second, millions are unemployed because of the virus and businesses had to close because of the virus. You also say, "trump has continued to trample the US constitution. to you that is good not bad. he is now a dictator. oh i forgot that is fake news, liberal news. we are all sinner" Can you name one of the US constitution's rules Trump trample? Don't forget, all of the Liberal newspapers, and networks are against Trump from the beginning. The left has tried everything to get him out but to no avail.
---ven. on 9/2/20|
The difference is this:
When criminals kill people, in most cases, they are quickly arrested, brought to trial, sentenced, and then spend many years in prison. This is justice.
But when police kill innocent people, in most cases, other cops cover for them, and they often get off with just a slap on the wrist, or even scot free. In the rare occasions when other officers call them on their corruption, THEY get persecuted or fired. This is injustice, and this is why people protest.

ven has learn to project like trump. when the truth is presented he will twist it around & project that YOU are the one who is the problem.
ever since trump won everything is wrong.-ven
look around ven, 180,000 have died because trump ignored the virus, millions are unemployed, evicted. he is disrupting the post office so he can win. trump has continued to trample the US constitution. to you that is good not bad. he is now a dictator. oh i forgot that is fake news, liberal news. we are all sinners but trump is NOW is license to SIN violate the law.

When have I EVER "defended those who murder policemen"?
Jesus never mentioned abortion. OT says killing unborn (a fine) is less than killing a person (life for life). It DEMANDS a woman suspected of adultery drink bitter water. If guilty, her womb shrivels up (and if pregnant, the child dies) - a chemically-induced abortion. No "the innocent should not suffer for the sins of its mother" here.
Many Christians today are abortion-single-issue voters, while ignoring other things Jesus DID talk about (feeding the hungry, clothing the poor, etc.)
I don't hate what Trump did because he's Trump or a Republican. Take the story of his deeds, erase all names, and see if those describe a hero or villain.
---StrongAxe on 8/28/20|
I don't think Joseph or Daniel bowed down to the powers over them. Getting thrown into an oven should prove that point. Even into death should be our stand when it comes to NOT OBEYING authority over us. My goodness, what if we are asked to pledge or sign something denying Jesus Christ? Paul was thrown in prison a few times for disobeying those authorities forbidding the preaching of Christ. Once he escaped being let down in a basket over a wall.
The Beast will be in authority over man. ven is going to obey the beast because he has been brainwashed in thinking since he's the elect God won't care. WRONG.
---kath4453 on 8/28/20|
Axe, you continue to defend those who are murdering policeman, who have families, who are there to protect you and your family when you need it. What about all of them? You never mention them. Many of them are black. Blacks killing blacks. It's the same with abortion, no one speaks for the human being whose brains are being sucked out with a vacuum. I know you don't and you claim to be righteous but others are not. Ever since Trump won, everything that he has done is wrong to you, but your way of thinking is wrong. You forget, we are all sinners.

Yes, and none of these are absolute, because all can and SHOULD be overridden:
1. People rebelling against an unjust government. (e.g. American and French revolutions).
2. Believers rebelling against a corrupt church (e.g. Protestant Reformation and leaving a cult)
3. Children rebelling against abusive parents.
4. Slaves or employees rebelling agsinst their cruel and unjust masters.
Just governments are all well and fine, but unfortunately, many governments are not just. E.g. when police murder innocent people and are not held accountable, victims get no justice. This is why people protest in the streets.
God made Rehoboam be cruel so the ten northern tribes WOULD rebel against him (1 Kings 11:1-13).

Funny the verse does not COMMAND OBEDIENCE ,....yikes... the word is SUBMIT.
May want to read other verses using the word SUBMIT to get a better understanding.

Axe, the passage I put down has an exception, anything we are commanded to do cannot go against Gods commands. No disobedience to God whatsoever. Since God alone is Sovereign He has instituted a human government to reward good and restrain sin in an evil fallen world. God instituted 4 authorities on earth,
1. The government over citizens,
2. The Church over all believers,
3 The parents over all children,
4. The Masters over all employees.
More explanations on the subject of government is found in the rest of chapter 13.
---ven. on 8/27/20|
That command is not absolute. If it were, during the Tribulations Christians would be required BY GOD to accept the Mark of the Beast, because the Beast would be the governing authority. Christins 2000 years ago would have been required BY GOD to burn incense to Caesar, because Caesar was the governing authority. 250 years ago, Americans would have been required BY GOD to obey King George, rather than rising in rebellion against him. All Christians would be required BY GOD to obey Satan, because Satan is the god of this world, by God's suffrance.
If you disagree with any of the above, it means that you believe that it's OK to disobey evil authority.

the conservative right use that to manipulate those who do not conform to their twisted teachings. do those who quote that like jeffress, robertson, franklin graham pay taxes? i don't think so. christ himself said to pay taxes yet the right love tax cuts. i even heard jeffress use the same verse as a justification to kill kim jung un, robertson said to assasinate chavez. very christian indeed

"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."> Romans 13:1.

God is in control -BUT- he allows Satan free reign, for a time. Satan is called "the god of this world". I wonder who gave him that position, or the permission to hold it? The answer should be obvious.
