Keep the Sword

“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… For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil… But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God's minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil” (Romans 13:1-4).

God gave “the sword” to government to execute God’s wrath on evil-doers. Attacking the police is rebellion against God. Good Policemen should be respected because of the authority God has given them, while bad Policemen should suffer God’s wrath. Solomon’s Wisdom said: “Because the sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil” (Ecclesiastes 8:11). Remove that “sword,” and the godless will rule! - June 15, 2020
