Governmental authority figures are being questioned left and right today.
Best policy? Submit to them anyway.
Teaching our kids to submit to legitimate authority should be standard fare for any responsible parent. Like it or not, our men and women in blue are our legitimate authority. Rebelling against police officers because one has a broad brush stereotypical view of all police being corrupt, inept, racist, or bigoted, is profiling the police the very same way so many people don’t want to be profiled themselves. Do you see the hypocrisy here?
The 13th chapter of Romans not only tells us to submit to our governmental authorities, but it also tells us that they don’t carry their weapons for nothing. The best way to ensure our kids won’t be victims of police abuse is to train them to obey the police. Each and every time they encounter them.
