Romans 13:1-2, "Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities for there is NO authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves."
I Peter 2:13 - "Submit yourselves FOR THE LORD'S SAKE to EVERY authority instituted among men; whether to the king, as the supreme authority, or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. For it is God's will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men."
God has instituted the governing body over us---we have the wonderful privilege of being a real part of that government by voting. We as individuals are the ones who have put our authorities into office, or have failed to put them in office because we choose to stay home and not vote. Please vote this coming Tuesday.
