“Have You Read This?”
Acts 23: 5: “And Paul said, ‘I was not aware, brethren, that he was high priest; for it is written, “You shall not speak evil of a ruler of your people.”’” By my personal count, this had to be the MIC (Most Ignored Commandment) of all time, especially these days. It comes from Exodus 22: 28, and gives no exemptions if the leader is red or blue, left or right, old or new, secular or religious, high or low. (It says a leader, not the leader) Ananias might have earned this curse, for was no Holy Joe. Paul; however, didn’t use that cop-out, either. But just imagine: If we removed all anti-leadership rants from the media, there might actually be some room for some good news for a change!
