Record High Name Government as Most Important Problem
Thirty-five percent of Americans name the government, poor leadership or politicians as the greatest problem facing the U.S. This is the highest percentage Gallup has recorded for this concern, edging out the previous high of 33% during the 2013 federal government shutdown.

The current percentage of Americans naming government as the most important problem is nearly twice as high as the 18% recorded in November. That increase likely reflects public frustration with the government shutdown that occurred from late December through most of January. Gallup observed a similar double-digit spike spanning the 2013 government shutdown, from 16% in September 2013 to 33% in October 2013. ...

Yes, the theme of Christians and Govt is a rich 'vein' to be mined. It's good that this website has so many sermons linked to the verses mentioned in Peter, as well as others.
What I find interesting about Peter's comments on govt is that the govts in those days were in no way democratic, and most likely Roman imperial authorities who did pretty much as they pleased. Evenso, he still recommends respect and praying for them.
I like to remember his comments whenever I read any Christian ministry tell us of how the govt should do A or B or C which they are not doing.
Right now, a lot of people are excited about what the US govt should be doing about Venezuela. Cuban exiles in Miami are very excited because they know that Cuba runs Venezuela, so if the US military invades and knocks out Maduro (in the same way they did to Noriega in Panama years ago), it will cut Cuba's lifeline of free oil and other goods (Maduro even sent aid to Cuba when they had a rare tornado in Cuba a few weeks ago!).

Psalm 8:4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

Psalm 8:5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

Might I add Galatians 6:1-2 or 3 to this discussion of wrongdoers and how we are to address them...and ourselves in light of them?

Per 1 John 1:8, sin isn't just something we do but something we possess. Romans 7 says that we have, at best, a battle within ourselves between sin and a mind toward God. Indeed, look no further for a wrongdoer than one's self.

While it is true that Peter wrote such things about the law enforcement functions of government, echoed by Paul, those same governments were also persecuting believers. They may have a role, ordained by the Lord, but that doesn't increase trust in them so much, then or now.

While Peter makes it clear that evildoers deserve punishment, I remind you that you and I deserve to be in hell. We can’t go into all the world and preach the gospel if we neglect convicts.

The second chapter of Peter's first letter talks about this: verse 14 says governors punish evildoers, verse 17 tells us to 'honor the king' and verse 20 talks of suffering for our own faults, that that is of not worthy.
Check this website's 'Online Bible" to find them and many sermons on each verse.

Peter never said any such thing, Doug. Paul, however, did say that we are to restore the fallen brother. Do you think we should just let prisoners go to hell?

Paul did set an example when dealing with King Agrippa, that he tried to persuade him to be a Christian. But I don't think the purpose of praying for those in authority is so that they become Christians. I think it was for them to be able to do their jobs, so that we (Christians) can live a peaceful and quiet life. One of their duties was to punish evildoers, and Peter said that those who suffer for doing wrong are not worthy of our attention (well, out goes those prison ministries!) because those in power wield the sword for that purpose.

Ah, a political issue! Which one that was elected to office has said “any of” the following:

Christianity is an exclusive religion. In order to be saved, you must be in Christ.

Abortion is murder and should therefore be prosecuted.

Homosexuality is an abomination in God’s eyes and they will suffer His wrath.

Greed is idolatry.

The feminist movement is evil in all its aspects.

And yes, I do pray for my elected leaders that they will do the will of my heavenly Father and that the Lord would save them, so no naysayers. Their primary purpose is to scratch itching ears to gain their support.

Gallup Surveys did not ask any Christians, who would have told them their Good Book tells them to pray for those in authority. And, if you think back to the Days of the Apostles and the Early Church, those govts were not democratic at all, and frequently were oppressing the Church.

It should be obvious to everyone that the majority of people were not happy, the huge win that the Democrats had in the House of Representatives shows that. I would say even more Democrats would have won, if many weren't so radical in the social area. There were certainly quite a few I wouldn't have voted for, that did win.
Read the Gallup article that SA has put up. It does an excellent job of pointing out the problem.
Jim, the main problem you have with Trump or with any Republican is none of them support black liberation theology; and regardless of what you say, you do.

Excessive government is a result of national sins—Proverbs 28:2. Government is not the problem. Sin is the problem. Bad and excessive government is merely the outgrowth of sin. If America will not repent, there is only one possible destiny for her: “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.”

A Beast rises from the sea. It gets bigger and bigger. It grows; it seeks to devours all things. Even professing Christians living in Nebraska beg for it to do more; “control our healthcare”, they cry to their master. The Beast consumes property and freedom; its hunger is insatiable.

Government Is Like Fire, a Dangerous Servant and a Fearful Master
