The powers that be, are ordained of God

November 2, 2016

 

Rulers therefore are God’s officers, placed under him in his kingdom, as he is the universal, absolute sovereign of the world; and they receive their power from God, who is the only original of power. Not only their strength from his strength, but their authority or governing power, (which is ‘jus regendi’) from his supreme authority; as mayors and bailiffs in corporations receive their power from the king. “There is no power, but of God; the powers that be, are ordained of God.”

Richard Baxter, William Orme, The Practical Works of the Rev. Richard Baxter, vol. 6 (London: James Duncan, 1830), 23–24.
