As a consequence of being the Creator, God is the supreme authority for the entire universe. Everything in creation exists by His good pleasure, so He answers to none other. The lesser authorities found in the government and family derive their right to govern from the Lord, but their rule over us is not absolute. Only His moral law binds our consciences, and we must obey Him even when doing so means we disobey lesser rulers in certain situations.
No one likes to be told what to do yet they expect the government to enact and enforce laws that restrict some behaviors while enforcing others depending on the whim of the electorate as dictated by popular culture government controlled media. Taking the entire Bible as a playbook teaches us natural law - the universal sense of right and wrong. It is a master cookbook with one recipe for righteousness that must be followed exactly and fully taking every word into consideration. Individual instructions for the pie (twisted scriptures) will not yield a good pie.
Revelation 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
