How should Christians deal with situations where they believe their leadership is not doing the right thing?

I was recently asked this by a listener to the Morning Mindset. It's not an easy question to deal with, much less answer. But the Bible does give us some guidelines for such situations. I sent an email response, but also included the subject in a Digging Deeper recording (TITLE: Listener Question about submitting to abusive authorities)

Is it unloving NOT to wear a mask during COVID concerns?

This was a question I received from a friend that I thought would make a great Digging Deeper topic. Once I got into it, I discovered that I needed to do a lot more thinking. I did, and added it to the episode.

Did you say that Cerebral Palsy and ALS are the results of sin? That sounds pretty ignorant!

In the September 13th episode of The Morning Mindset you said that Cerebral Palsy and ALS are the result of sin. I'm confused, can you explain how you see that to be true?

answer to the ALS question

Carey, I love your podcast and just signed up to partner with you. Thank you so much for the clarification! I, too was also so worried when I heard it. I am learning so much about God and the Bible through your teaching. thank you!

How I found you

Hi Carey, My name is Don-Anthony. I've been a nurse for about 3 1/2 years. I wanted to fill you in on how I found your programs and also say thank you for what you are doing in my life. I was born into a Catholic home, then my mom converted to Born-Again Christianity. I went to numerous Christian based schools even an 7th Adventist school. So GOd has been a part of my life for some time. After my mom divorced I began to seperate myself from church and its teachings. Probably for about 10 years, maybe longer. I always believed in Christ and his teachings but wasn't really doing anything to grow spiritually. THen my grandmother, a very important person passed away and I found myself feeling very empty. I started praying again, I started setting aside a tithe praying to use it to help whomever God sent to me. But I still wasn't reading His Word. Whenever I would read the Bible the words and meanings seemed different from when I was younger and more spiritually involved. It was almost like reading another language. I became discouraged and stopped trying. I was still praying and tithing, but couldn't really study and understand. I found you when I was working graveyard shift. I was new at my job and was having a very rough time adjusting to the demands. So every morning after work I would listen to regular morning talk show radio programs, to try and unwind from the night's work. One morning as I was driving home a segment came on entitled "People Who Should Go to Hell" it was segment about news clips they found about people doing horrible things, and voting on which person should go to hell. As I listened, I just had this awakening. I turned it off and decided to fill my mind with positive Christ centered words instead of the crap I had been filling my head with. I did a podcast search and found you show as well as "life without limbs" I haven't listened to talk show radio since. It has really helped me to remember what I should be doing. But I still struggle when it comes to Bible study. Most people recommend John to start. I tried that but I am still having trouble getting into Bible study. I have been listening to your podcasts on Saul/Paul and would very much like to read his journey as well as king David. any recommendations on reading up on these 2 people in chronological order would be greatly appreciated as well as anything else to help with getting to know my calling through Christ. Praying for your family through these rough times. Sorry to hear about your sister, my own father is starting his cancer therapy soon. And my in-laws have numerous health and financial challenges that my wife and I are trying to help with. Thank you for making God's word a part of my life every day. God bless you and your family, Sincerely, Don-Anthony Galvan
