Papal Loyalty 
by Rick Boxx
April 14, 2010

Many Catholic leaders have shown undying loyalty to the Pope as his involvement in overseeing the sexual abuse cases comes into question. Although I have no reason to doubt the Pope, loyalty is an impressive virtue provided it's placed in the right person.

It's important that our loyalty to God takes priority over any man. The amazing story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego is a good example of the right priorities.

In Daniel 3 these three men proclaim their loyalty to God over Nebuchadnezzar. In verse 18 they tell the king, "We want you to know, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up."

If you have to choose between loyalty to your boss and loyalty to God, choose God!
