Romans 13:5 (KJV) Law Abiding Saints

Romans 13:5 (KJV)
Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.
Jameson-Fausset-Brown writes, “…since Christians were constantly charged with turning the world upside down, and since there certainly were elements enough in Christianity of moral and social revolution to give plausibility to the charge…”
Christianity was, from the beginning, a push against the progressive direction in both religious and civil matters. It must be remembered however that it was a push to return to the plan of God. Christianity has never meant to take human kind where they have never been before; that is the agenda of the irreligious and progressive religion. Christianity, as Christ established it, is a move to return to where God intended man in the first place.
Christianity has been, however, given to push back. Much of the time that push is right and good and necessary. Sometimes it has turned into pushing for the sake of pushing. It has led to pushing back at things entirely unnecessary.
The Word of God foresaw this propensity and therefore urged upon believers to “for conscience sake” be subject to the laws of government. There will be plenty of times that the Spirit of God will compel us to push against the progressive nature of fallen man. When not led of the Spirit to do so our testimony ought to be that of submission.
