Jesus said, "Obey or I will kill you."( Luke 19:27)
| According to Pope Leo XIII(795-816), the right to rule comes from the Apostolic Papacy.
The Pope is infallible in matters of faith and the Divine right of Kings.
The consent of the people is necessary for a just King to rule.
Nevertheless, justice and morality do not come from popular opinion.
The rule of law is linked to the unbroken chain from Jesus to his Apostles
and finally the Pope.
The Popes traditionally supported the Kings of Europe and denounced popular uprisings.
The Rev. Martin Luther(1485-1546), wrote in his diary about the Reformation,
"There is no rustic so rude, who can imagine the Holy Spirit speaks to him
and he is a prophet."
The Rev. Martin Luther taught that salvation came from God, not good deeds.
Pope Pius VI(1775-99) commented on the American Continental Revolution of 1776,
"Human rights come from divine providence."
Pope Pius VI was imprisoned by Napoleon Bonapart(1789)during the French Revolution.
