Divine vs Govt Authority

From BibleStrength

Biblically, the righteous are commonly persecuted by government, and persecution is not a question of if but when.

Virtually all of the righteous peoplein the Bible, if not all, were persecuted by unjust governments. Moses was persecuted by Pharaoh's Egypt, Elijah by Ahab, Jesus and John the Baptist by Herod, etc.

As such, government authority is not to be followed when counter to divine authority.
