Did God really say we are to respect judges and rulers?
Yes … yes he did: regardless of whether you like the individual or not.
Here is what God says: “Do not revile (blaspheme) (the judges / God / the gods) or curse the ruler of your people.” Exodus 22:28
We may not agree with those in authority over us. We may not agree with the decisions rendered. But God is clear on this matter: we are to respect them. If we disagree with those in authority over us, pray for them and ask God to give those individuals wisdom and discernment.
