Dear Christian, do not allow others to take scripture out of the context of the “entire Bible” and tell you that “you “Need” to submit to “all” authority because all authority was put there by God.” This is only half of the truth.. there are exceptions in scriptures to that declaration… in fact there is specific scripture that says if anybody in Authority asks you to do anything that would dishonor God you can descent against that Authority; for an example, if any leader asks you to use your money I.E. “tax dollars” to pay for abortions, you can descent against that Authority. if any Authority tells you “you need to bake a cake for homosexuals.” that dishonors God, as a Christian you can descent from that Authority….
If your teacher or your parent or your pastor asked you to do something that would dishonor God it is your right and obligation to stand up to that Authority and rebuke them!! Use your head people!! As Christians we do not just automatically submit to all authority!!….. Read your Bible or you will fall for the deceivers.
