Despise Dominion

At second Peter Two, those that despise government are described as self-willed. The latter seems to be the reason for the former. The Thirteenth of Romans teaches us that the higher powers of government are ordained of God and those resisting these powers are actually resisting the ordinance of God. To disagree with a law or policy is one thing, but to resist the concept of law and government is quite another. Disagreeing with an office-holding person is one thing, but rebellion against the authority of that office is, again, quite another. Learning submission to civil authority helps one to learn submission to the Supreme Authority of God Himself. Jude described them as filthy dreamers who speak evil of dignities because they despise dominion.
