Lawlessness Comes From Authority without Accountability

Lawlessness is not when criminals commit crimes. That’s just a lawbreaker, and God already has a system in place for them to be punished.

Lawlessness comes when those who are appointed to keep the law become a law unto themselves and are no longer accountable to the law. Lawless authority is what creates lawlessness in a region. Then God can bring in bigger, or even foreign authorities to that region to establish law.
