As in the song "Lawyers In Love" we have a land, a nation with too many in high places willing to do anything for money neglecting people, honor and principle but a change is coming. No more falling for the lie of living only individualistic and independent lives leaving us divided and conquerable by powerful special interests but a people, a nation collaborating for the greater common good in various groups all across the nation. A land of people working together to help one another with a vision moreover as Jesus would have us be. Love, Mercy, Forgiveness, Kindness....something about another Land. The change is coming

God & The Power of the Sword to Governments

God has asked us to obey our government and to honor our leaders but this does not extend to agreeing with all they say or obeying them when it is in conflict with God's laws. As for God giving the power of the sword to government, this is in regard to us obeying in a general sense. He has given governments authority on earth and the majority of all empires to rule the earth have been ungodly and secular. This is a general right He has given to man, whether they believe in Him or not, just as He gives man the right to breath and go on living in sin but it is not an endorsement of man's ways.
