I remember my dad telling me that what my boss demands, I must do in order to keep my job. He never came to my defense when I went against authority because he believed that, as the bible says, the borrower is a slave to the lender! This means that if I want the job, I must abide by the rules and laws of that employer. There was no social media back then, so I couldn't get hyped up by folks commenting, telling me to stand up for my rights against my employer while all along keeping their jobs! Now, Jerry Jones cannot even demand that his players stand for the flag unless he wants to be called a racist. But he is suppose to pay millions of dollars to guys with their own ideals of how the team should behave? Is that how he made his fortune? Not honoring or obeying those that have rule over him? No way! Jerry is rich because he understands authority. But now we have a second string quarterback, looking for a job on a team but wanting to make his own rules about kneeling for the anthem in the process.
This is how anarchy is born. Anarchy is always birthed when a people group will not take responsibility for their own behaviors but blame the powers that be for their bad choices in life. Unfortunately, it is not going to get better but much worse. These are the beginnings of the end for our people and America as we know it. Until people recognize that it's their own sin that is causing their depression and self hatred, they will not seek God for help. Christ can help us all but there must first be a recognition of who we are and how sinful we have been. Then and only then can we be forgiven and live better lives.
