The Right Use of Spiritual Freedom – 1 Peter 2:13-17

2 (13) Submit to every human authority for the Lord’s sake; whether to the king as the supreme human authority, (14) or to governors as those appointed by him to punish evil doers and to commend those who do what is right. (15) Submit to all such authority because this is the will of God. Silence the foolishness of ignorant men by doing what is right. (16) Live as free men, but not using this freedom as a pretext for evil; rather, using it as servants of God. (17) Respect all men; love the brotherhood of believers; fear God, honor the king.
