1 Peter 2:13-14 Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; (14) Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.
Whether we like it or not we are subject to the laws of the land. This has been a presidential election year and frankly for the last few elections I haven't been overly fond of any of the candidates. That does not mean that I am not to respect the offices they get elected to.
Sometimes God even raises up men to punish an evil population. I am not sure if you have noticed it lately or not but we are certainly living in an evil time when people take sin lightly and when it is wrong to criticize anyone except Christians.
I believe that if a law doesn't cause me to directly go against God's Word, I am subject to it. Yes, this even means the speed limit. We must remember that it is God that ordains Government and it is for His honor and glory. It really doesn't matter who the president it as long as we recognize that Jesus is still the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
