The plea of many sinners at the great day! We followed our guides; we did as we saw others do! God has given a rule to walk by, in His word; neither the example of the majority, nor of the "highest leaders", must influence us contrary to God's law: if we do as the majority do, we must go where they go, even into the "Lake of Fire" {Rev. 19:11-21}



            "For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil": 


Since God's purpose in ordaining government in the days of Noah was to restrain wickedness and promote virtue, we are to be in subjection to any government which fulfills this purpose. However, the declaration of Independence was composed to rebuke George 111's government for punishing virtue while at the same time rewarding wickedness.....Christians, heed to, we are never under subjection to injustice [the devils] or a government of wickedness. Rulers are to be established to be a terror to evil and to promote the good. We are to respect any government which does so and reject any government which does not. May evil people arrest evil people, leave the righteous alone [Romans 13:1-7].

The leaders are the tyrants of the land, and tyrants seldom go to their graves in peace Psalm 82:6-7. Asaph warned that if a judge chooses to live as a tyrant, he must expect to die as a tyrant. Arise, O God, judge the earth. The words of God now being ended, the psalmist calls upon Him  at once to proceed to the judgment of unjust judges. The call to arise is a metaphor taken from the common gesture of judges who sit as they hear the case and arise to pronounce a sentence Psalm 82:8.
