Does Everyone Hate Us?

Does Everyone Hate Us?

There is a lot of hate, hostility and disobedience going on in the world today, especially towards law enforcement! But is it right? Is it OK? Should we have these types of feelings and aggressions towards them? What does God’s Word have to say? Well, today we find out! We join Pastor David Crespo in God’s Holy Word to learn more! Let’s listen in!

Romans 13:1-7 New King James Version

Submit to Government
1 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. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will [a] bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. 4 For he is God’s minister to you for good. 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. 5 Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake. 6 For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. 7 Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.
