The only circumstance that disobedience to authority is justifiable by scripture, is if it conflicts with the laws of God. Authority should be cooperated with except in those situations where laws depart from the basic moral and righteous principles of God’s Word.
Paul tells us to pray for all those in authority: “ I exhort first of all that supplications,

Yeah. He has put Maobama in place for His purposes. I ask folks to read Habakkuk, to get an idea of what the Lord can do to straighten out his people.

Agreed! When a law tells a Christian hospital to perform abortions, they BEST lock the doors, and leave.

On a side. It was VERY disheartening that Roman Catholics, professing a belief in Christ, voted 70% for Maobama.

If they can find one, I suggest they open and LEARN the Bible.

 Aggregated at Twitchy are a selection of tweets from small business owners who have been forced, unwillingly, to fire employees in order to survive a second Obama term.
