Non-Believers' Reacton to Christ

1Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. 2Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves. 3For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same; 4for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil. (Romans 13:1–4)

12“But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and will persecute you, delivering you to the synagogues and prisons, bringing you before kings and governors for My name’s sake. 13It will lead to an opportunity for your testimony… 16“But you will be betrayed even by parents and brothers and relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death, 17and you will be hated by all because of My name. 18Yet not a hair of your head will perish. 19By your endurance you will gain your lives. (Luke 21:12-13, 16–19)

This is going to be the closest thing to an election year political discussion offered at Walk with the Word, and no, there will be no endorsement of either a political party or presidential candidate nor an appeal to return America to some perceived perfect time when everyone was Christian who never missed Sunday School or a prayer meeting. As can be seen in the contrasting passages of Scripture above, there is mandated Christian behavior where governments and politics are concerned when living in “normal” times as provided by Paul in Romans, and quite a difference provided by Jesus Himself as the end of the present age draws to a close and it all comes upon us as stronger and ever-increasingly more frequent birth pangs inevitably initiating the Last Days. Or as that really old time Preacher phrased it:

6A time to search and a time to give up as lost;
A time to keep and a time to throw away. (Ecclesiastes 3:6)
