Romans 13:1-8: Is It Our Duty To Obey Evil Government?

I get a lot of believers in Jesus asking me about our duty to obey government even if they are acting in an evil way. They usually cite Romans chapter 13.

If you are wondering if you are deceived by thinking that you don’t need to be duty bound to follow whatever the evil government decides, let me tell you that you are not deceived.

Below I take a quick look at the first 8 verses in Romans 13 from the KJVER version with my comments inter dispersed.

Let every soul be subject to the higher powers [i.e. governmental authorities]. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of [established by] God.

Romans 13:1

This is of course correct. All power on earth is under God’s sovereign will.
