What right have you to recite My statutes and to bear My covenant on your lips?

A worker who does not need to be ashamed rightly dividing the word of truth shares this with the Public:

The authorities are God’s servants, giving their fulltime to governing and that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed this is also why you pay taxes. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For 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 will receive his approval, for 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, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience. 6For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing. Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed. Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed. The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So, because you are lukewarm neither hot nor cold. I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You who preach against stealing, do you steal? you, then, who teach others, do you not teach yourself? To the wicked, however, God says, Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. You hate my instruction and cast my words behind you and you have done more evil than all who came before you. You have proceeded to make for yourself other gods and molten images to provoke Me, and you have flung Me behind your back. When you see a thief, you befriend him, and throw in your lot with adulterers anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, who has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. You who forbid adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples “What right have you to recite My statutes and to bear My covenant on your lips? For you hate My instruction and cast My words behind you. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in quarreling and jealousy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.
