In this program I explain the apparent descrepancy between the following two quotes: Any man who says that he really and firmly believes a certain law of God binding on him, and who will not obey it in preference to a conflicting law of man or a decision of a court, has either an un-[144]sound mind or a cowardly soul, or is a most contemptible hypocrite. (John Taylor, Des. News, July 7, 1886) But Paul says:  1 LET every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.   2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.   3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:   4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to [execute] wrath upon him that doeth evil.   5 Wherefore [ye] must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.   6 For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.   7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute [is due]; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.              (Rom  13:1-7)
