An Apology to Our Government as a Christian

As Christians we can only appropriately approach our views of government two ways. We should follow the Romans 13 way:
1Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.2Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment… (ESV)
And accept how those enact laws, aka Health Care, while in power, or we need to stay completely out of it. Unfortunately we have done neither. I am reminded of recent events, such as those Christians who were spreading the false rumors that Obama was/is against The National Day of Prayer, or who completely criticize, usually in harsh/unchristian language, the government because the Party they support is not in power. This is completely irresponsible for us as Christians. I am calling for all Christians to apologize to our Government for how we have acted especially in the past few months/years. Not only should we apologize but we need to pledge to act better from here on out. How are we to be set apart if we act no better than anyone else or worse (in my opinion) when it comes to politics. I personally vote we become more apolitical, but none the less we need to act more mature. If you agree I suggest you post on your social media accounts, aka Facebook, twitter, etc, an apology to our Government and pledge to act more maturely in the future. Remember Obama says he is a Christian and I cannot in good faith (to God) say he is not: Judge not, that you be not judged (Matt 7:1 ESV).
