As pilgrims, we must remember that this life is not our own; therefore, it is not about us.
We are called to obey the law of the land, unless it means disobeying God.
God has called us to live peaceable lives under all governing authorities, only resisting when we are commanded to sin.
Governments topple, kingdoms vanish and our world will one day fade away; therefore, submit to God and the authorities placed over you out of submission to God and for the salvation of those around us.
