  7. Our Responsibility to Authorities

  8. I Tim. 2:1-2 Pray for Authorities • 2 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; • 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

  9. Rom. 13:1-4 Be Subject to them • 13 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. • 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. • 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: • 4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil

  10. Rom. 13:5- Render their Dues • 5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. • 6 For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. • 7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.

  11. But Remember: • Acts 5:29 • 29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.

  12. Acts 5:29 • Any law that conflicts with God’s law… • God is to be obeyed, • and not man!
