How shall we view rulers

Let every Christian hear what God told Moses, because many Christians violate it,

“You shall not revile God, nor curse a ruler of your people” (Exodus 22:28).

Some Christians revile God by their attitude toward the Old Testament, for they speak against it as though it was something vile, but, my friends, the Old Testament is the word of God. Be careful what you say about it, for Paul quoted this very passage to rebuke himself, showing its current validity (Acts 23:4, 5).

Some Christians curse a ruler of the people, whether it be an elder in the church or the leader of a nation. Be careful what you say about a ruler, for he is in that position because God put him there.
