The government was established to uphold the law mentioned in the first five books of the Bible from Genesis to Deuteronomy. Due to a fallen sin nature, EVERYONE is born with, laisse-faire government and anarchy-style governments have failed. Instead of learning from history, humans fall back on pride and repeat the same mistakes. Christians are instructed to obey regulations by those who are placed in positions of authority. However, this comes with a catch: EXCEPT WHEN GOVERNING OFFICIALS ASK YOU TO SIN.
