Submit to Government

13 Let every soul be asubject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists bthe authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will 1bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? cDo what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore dyou must be subject, not only because of wrath ebut also for conscience’ sake.
