Obedience To The Governing Authorities

1 Let every soul be subject to offices of authority that rank higher, for there is no office of authority if not by God, and the offices of authority that are by God, are those that have been instituted. 2 So that he who resists the office of authority has opposed the ordinance of God, and those who have opposed will receive condemnation to themselves. 3 For rulers are not a source of fear to the good works, but to the evil. And do thou desire not to fear the office of authority? Do what is good, and thou will have praise from it.
