You’ve been brought up to believe that the powers of government derive from the consent of the people. That’s wrong. If I had time I could give a more nuanced account of this. But at best that’s deism. It’s certainly anti-Christian. The powers of government, the authority of government, derive from the Lord Jesus Christ. He is King of kings and Lord of lords. God has set him over all the nations of the earth, and to him all kings, rulers, and presidents should submit. The President serves at the pleasure of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is a man under authority. This is also true for the legislative and judicial branches of government.
