Romans 11:20; Romans 13:3-4
Quite right, they were broken off for their unbelief, but you stand by your faith. Do not be conceited , but fear;
For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same;
for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil.
