In the wake of a challenging political week—
I find interesting the Apostle Peter’s (1 Peter 2:12-13) direction on living in an irreligious society:
1-“Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.”
OK, got that, but then he immediately follows noting government:
2-“Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority: whether to the emperor, as the supreme authority, or to governors.”
In other words, if we want to live right and live well, we mind our own character, then honor current government.
If you think this is difficult in the US today, remember the government Peter referenced was the Roman Empire and the despicable Emperor Nero.
