Baloney. He Ain't My President. I didn't vote for him. I don't support him. I won't support him. There is no Biblical mandate to support godless leaders, in fact, if you read the Scripture, the opposite view prevails. There are in my mind serious questions about the legality of the whole thing. (How can California's 55 electoral votes be given to Obama with 0% of the precincts reporting for example?)

Romans 9

17 For the Scripture says to the Pharaoh, “For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth.”

18 Therefore He has mercy on whom He wills, and whom He wills He hardens.

19 You will say to me then, “Why does He still find fault? For who has resisted His will?”

20 But indeed, O man, who are you to reply against God? Will the thing formed say to him who formed it, “Why have you made me like this?”

21 Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for honor and another for dishonor?

22 What if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction,

23 and that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He had prepared beforehand for glory,

24 even us whom He called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?

I've seen some things out of context before, but this takes the proverbial cake. God is showing his power in (through) godless Pharoah TO JUDGE PHAROAH, to show the contrast. You might better consider Romans 13, which states that all authority comes from God. Please see "Law and leaders."

Indeed.

Romans 13

13 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 bring judgment on themselves.

And the supreme power in this nation is the Constitution, not the President. Obama has been ignoring the Constitution and "going around" it as RG admitted, so we are under no obligation to follow him. In addition to that, he has no more power than Congress or the Supreme Court. We don't have a king. Then there is the matter of how God will cause an uprising of the people to bring about his purposes, as when he raised up Jereboam to take the majority of the Kingdom away from Solomon's son because of his sins. I agree with Bold Believer.

There is a question over massive voter fraud around Cleveland and Philadelphia. Then there are all those military votes that were misplaced till one day after the election so they wouldn't be counted. I am still not convinced Obama was born in Hawaii, because the last BC he presented was a fraud, and I don't care if people want to attack me for not believing it is legitimate. Now that he is re-elected, he needs to be impeached for making recess appointments when Congress was not in recess. In other words, he resisted the power and violated the Constitution. Since Congress won't keep their oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution, I don't expect them to do anything, as they are resisting the power. The whole system is broken.

If the president isn't a governing authority, what is he?

I did not write this. It is simply one man's opinion: posted on November 20, 2012 at 1:21am.

I agree with most of what he said. Thanks for the link. I added the Patriot Action Network to my favorites. I plan to look into it further. I like what I saw.

We do have a broken system, and need to fix it. What I suggest is a Constitutional Amendment that makes the states authority clearly supreme to the powers of the federal government. It would make it to where the feds couldn't strike down any state law, for supposedly being unconstitutional. It would prevent the federal government from telling the state what they could do with their land. The EPA could no longer restrict drilling or mining, or any kind of power plant from being built. States like Arizona and Texas would be free to protect their borders. The majority would rule in each state, and the feds would be impotent to do anything about it. The states could even reject treaties made by the federal government. The only real purpose of the federal government would be national defense. All matters of education, welfare, even whether or not to regulate drugs and weapons would rest with the state. The states could even set up their own state religion, or allow tolerance to all religions. You would have demoncracy in it's purest form, but at the local level. Those of us in the south-east don't even resemble those in New England, and those in New England aren't the same as those in California or the mid-west. The Mayor of Chicago spoke of how Chic Fil-A doesn't represent their values. Perhaps Starbucks doesn't represent our values? Let the people decide the government they want, but at the state level.
