Obeying The Authority Government
See also: Authorities Mind Control
Christians tend to misunderstand the teaching and instruction found in the Bible regarding obeying authority - emphasis added to illustrate essence:
HEB 13:17 Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account. Obey them so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no advantage to you.
RO 13:1 Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.  Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.  For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you.  For he is God's servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.  Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience.
RO 13:6 This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God's servants, who give their full time to governing.  Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.
Christians often take the above verses as instruction from God to obey everything anyone in 'authority' attempts to enforce on them. However, there is no such instruction to obey what is wrong or unrighteous. To the contrary the Bible is full of instruction and examples of standing against 'authority' that is in the wrong. What after all, is authority? If someone in a government position is a law breaker they stand in their position and act without the authority of the law. For it is the law which gives the power to authority. And when people make so-called laws that violate the core law, then those so-called laws are lawless, they are void and the person in government attempting to enforce them does so without authority.
JN 2:13 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem.  In the temple courts he found men selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money.  So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple area, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables.  To those who sold doves he said, "Get these out of here! How dare you turn my Father's house into a market!"
AC 5:27 Having brought the apostles, they made them appear before the Sanhedrin to be questioned by the high priest.  "We gave you strict orders not to teach in this name," he said. "Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and are determined to make us guilty of this man's blood."
AC 5:29 Peter and the other apostles replied: "We must obey God rather than men!
AC 4:18 Then they called them in again and commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus.  But Peter and John replied, "Judge for yourselves whether it is right in God's sight to obey you rather than God.  For we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard."
EPH 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.  Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.  Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,  and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.  In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.  And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
Hundreds of similar references of disobeying earthly authority can be found in the Bible. There is no construct to obey that which is wrong or unlawful.
Government authorities are under the authority of law. When government authorities break the law, they loose their legal authority. In such instances, as Christians, it is your duty to obey the authority of law and above anyone else to hold these criminals who are breaking the law of the land accountable.
"Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword." Mathew 10:34
"He said to them, "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a
bag; and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.
It is written: `And he was numbered with the transgressors' ; and I tell
you that this must be fulfilled in me. Yes, what is written about me is
reaching its fulfillment.
The disciples said, "See, Lord, here are two swords." "That is enough," he replied." Luke 22:36-38
"Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it and struck the high priest's servant, cutting off his right ear. (The servant's name was Malchus.). Jesus commanded Peter, "Put your sword away! Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given me?"" John 18:10, 11
"Put your sword back in its place," Jesus said to him, "for all who draw the sword will die by the sword. Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels? But how then would the Scriptures be fulfilled that say it must happen in this way?" Mathew 26:52-54

George W. Bush has not only murdered in cold blood many of his fellow citizens, he has caused the excruciating death of hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of other innocent people around the world. There is no legal authority for the Executive Branch to make law. By issuing Executive Orders, Bush like his predecessors over the last 100 years has committed treason. Why does Bush not expose the criminal nature of the Federal Reserve Bank who controls our government? Are you aware that Bush is a member of a cult that worships satan?
Biblically, the essence of the law is summed up in the following:
RO 2:12 All who sin apart from the law will also perish apart from the law, and all who sin under the law will be judged by the law.  For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God's sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous.  (Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law,  since they show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts now accusing, now even defending them.)  This will take place on the day when God will judge men's secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares.
Do what is right, oppose what is wrong.
By their fruits you will know them. On that point it would be good to consider that Roman Catholicism which founded Christianity has been the most destructive religion ever.
