Paul wrote, "Let everyone be subordinate too higher authorities.:

Tuesday, 2/23/16

Jesus said, “The Scribes and the Pharisees sit on the chair of Moses. Therefore, do and observe all things whatsoever they tell you.”

That is a very important text for us all. The law is the law, and we must obey it even when we have differences with the ones administering it. Paul made that clear in Chapter Thirteen of his “Letter to the Romans” where he wrote.

Let every person be subordinate to the higher authorities, for there is no authorities except from God, and those that exist have been established by God. Therefore, whoever resists authority opposes what God has appointed.”

If you ask when does the Bible tell us that God has appointed such authority, you might find an answer in Genesis, 2:18 that states, “It is not good for man to be alone.” That verse states that we are not solitaries, but we social beings by nature; and in creating us that way God created the need for us to have someone there to finish the arguments.
