day no. 13,112: authority's Author‏

Romans 13:1
Everyone must submit to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except from God, and those that exist are instituted by God.
Each and every single person
Ought to
Place themselves under the authority structures God has designed.
The fundamental issue is one of acknowledging the authority the governing authorities rightly have over you. They have a God-given right to be in authority over you.
So drive the speed limit, pay your taxes, get the proper permits to work on your home, etc…. 

It costs you no compromise of conscience to conform these behaviors to what the authorities have determined.  It may cost you time and money, but everything costs something and some things are not worth the cost and crisis of conscience of being confronted with verses like this. Better to be in compliance with God’s Word and out a few bucks and hours than broke before God with a few dollars and minutes to show for it.
