Bible says to pray for political leaders

Dear Editor:

I feel it is time for me to no longer be “the silent type.” It is very disturbing to me that some people feel that the local newspaper is to be the means of launching a personal attack, via a letter writing campaign. It is also disturbing that some of them do so without all of the facts. I am referring to the negative campaigns in recent history regarding the doctors, hospital, and more recently the town council and the mayor.

When a person has a legitimate concern or question, the right thing to do is to go to the source for your answers. God-fearing people know that the Bible teaches to live in peace with all men (James 3:13-18; Mark 9:50), to focus on what is good, right and true, to pray for those in leadership and to respect authority (Romans 13).

If one wishes to hold office in one of these institutions, let them run a campaign where at the end of the day, their loved ones, friends and family can be proud of them, and where they can hold their head high.

In the words of Jesus I close with, “He who is without sin, let him cast the first stone.” John 8:7.
