right

but the whole thing you are here protesting, as I am, is that the Government, and most people, act as if the reverse were true. This comes from the fact that there are "authority figures" whether they are judges, policemen, elected officials that most people are used to obeying. This quote wasn't a description of how the person gets to be an authority figure, but a direction to the person who in theory is under that authority. Keep in mind there was slavery in Biblical times. Many people if not all people do not fully consent to whatever kind or nature or degree of authority over them, yet this is what 2 Peter says on the matter. Not very Libertarian is it.

I know your answer, it is one I use, but I don't know that it is entirely consistent with the Bible.
