and they are utterly consumed with fire.”

Romans 13:3-4

3For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you l  will receive his approval, 4for m  he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God n  an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer.
