What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice


I don't think that word means what you think it means,” is a good thought for 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. God established the powers of government, but God did not hand pick Governor Cuomo, the reprobate that called for all Christians not supporting abortion on demand, to get out of NY State. The office was “ordained” by God, but Cuomo was hand picked by voters, not by God. President Trump was not “ordained” by God to be our president. President Trump was most certainly put into that “ordained” office in answer to Christian's prayers, but be careful with what is “ordained” and what that word means. If you know John Calvin and look up each use of that English word in your Bible you will be as confused as him. Get and use a Strong's Exhaustive Concordance to do your word studies. God chose Gentiles to receive salvation, not choosing the “whosoevers” that attain salvation, that is corporate election, and God ordained offices of government, not choosing the individuals, good or evil, that sit in those offices. There is not an ounce of fatalism in this Bible so don't allow an ounce of it into your Christian doctrine. Romans 13 teaches Christians to submit to governing authorities and to pay taxes, “Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour” (vr.7). Then verse 8 tells us to pay our debts and recognize the debt of love that we owe to all mankind. Government promotes good, punishes evil, and protects the innocent, live peaceably with it, while being a minister of reconciliation.
