Here is the most quoted pro-authority passage in Scripture from the book of Romans:
Rom 13:1 Let every soul be subject to higher authorities, for there is no authority except from God, but the existing authorities have been ordained by God.
Rom 13:2 So that the one resisting authority has opposed the ordinance of God, and the ones opposing will receive judgment to themselves.
Rom 13:3 For the rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the bad. And do you desire not to fear the authority? Do the good, and you will have praise from it;
Rom 13:4 for it is a servant of God to you for the good. But if you practice evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword in vain; for it is a servant of God, an avenger for wrath to the one practicing bad things.
Rom 13:5 Because of this, it is necessary to be subject, not only on account of wrath, but also on account of conscience.
Rom 13:6 For on this account you also pay taxes, for they are ministers of God, always giving attention to this very thing.
Rom 13:7 Then give to all their dues: to the one due tax, the tax; to the one due tribute, the tribute; to the one due fear, the fear; to the one due honor, the honor.
Rom 13:8 Do not continue to owe no one, nothing, except to love one another. For the one loving the other has fulfilled the Law.
I have bolded certain parts of the passage which I believe are crucial but most pro-authority folks gloss over.
v.3: For the rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the bad. (A lawful authority punishes evldoers and does not hinder the good. Would you say that describes the government of which you spoke?)
v.6 for they are ministers of God, always giving attention to this very thing. (Would you say that the government of which you speaks ministers in the same manner as God, giving freely, without compulsion, allowing free choice?)
v.8 Do not continue to owe no one, nothing, except to love one another. (Would you say the government acts in a loving manner?)
Remember Christ, most of the apostles, most of martyrs throughout history were not killed by religious institutions but by governments.
What did Jesus say? John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would have fought that I might not be delivered up to the Jews. But now My kingdom is not from here.
