Good question don’t you think? I believe many today are in positions of leadership not because they are truly worthy to be there but because some how they have won support or perhaps bought their way into the position. Not everyone who holds a position of leadership should be honored and be praised. Only those who are deserving of praise and honor should be given such honor. However tyrants force us into subjection by demanding obedience and allegience. They use force or the threat of force to gain power and control over a people. Honorable men and women do not seek to rule by force but rather seek to earn respect by acknowledging that they are under the authority of God, therefore they know to treat others the way they wish to be treated. Who then is worthy of honor? Those who recognize God’s authority over mankind. These are they who stand with the founders who declared that ‘all men where created equal and were endowed by their CREATOR with certain inalienable rights’ God given rights, rights which need to be respected, cherished, and defended.
