Bible: 1 Pet 2:13-18
Submission to Authorities
2:13 Be subject to every human institution 1 for the Lord’s sake, whether to a king as supreme 2:14 or to governors as those he commissions 2 to punish wrongdoers and praise 3 those who do good. 2:15 For God wants you 4 to silence the ignorance of foolish people by doing good. 2:16 Live 5 as free people, not using your freedom as a pretext for evil, but as God’s slaves. 6 2:17 Honor all people, love the family of believers, 7 fear God, honor the king.
