If we submit to the authority of God through the perfect revelation of Jesus Christ. We then must realize that in so doing we are subverting the authority and dominion in our lives of the earthly realm and powers that claim that same dominion and authority in our lives.
Some would argue that just Christ without accountability from their leadership is the the wrong path. Those that say that will make feeble efforts misquoting scripture in an attempt to control you by your submission to their authority. Which is given them through the process of denominational theocracy. Not from God! Do you submit to man-made religion or Christ?
If we as Followers of Christ are to be subversive then we will naturally be a thorn in the side of the religious establishment. Just as Jesus was a thorn in His time so must we be in our time. Religion does nothing but breed apostasy by getting you to fall inline with a narrow minded view on God. And when you realize that there is a double standard when being judged by your so-called brothers and sisters you become an apostate. Or perhaps you become and atheist following a different rhetoric and marching to a different drummer.
Judging God based on the actions of others is anthropomorphic and attempts to bring God down to the finite level of the human being. Instead realize that God is above our highest thoughts and not subject to our finite thinking. Do you serve God or does He serve you. Do you believe in God and His son Jesus Christ? Would you die for that belief?
The Lord bless and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
And give you peace.
