From the very beginning of God's word in the book of Genesis, we see that mankind was given authority by God. Authority over His creation as well as the authority to choose. All human authority comes from God and involves limitations, responsibilities and results. This message, part 2 of 3, focuses on the authority of civic governments and how we are to relate to them as Christians.
