Christians are SPECIFICALLY directed to obey the civil authorities
“Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God…Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.”—Romans 13:1 & 5
“Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority: whether to the emperor, as the supreme authority, or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right.”—1 Peter 2:13-14
If you are a Christian and looking for Biblical permission to resist the governing authorities, you are not going to find it in the bible.
