"Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ"
The author of 1 Peter claims to be the apostle Peter. Most Bible scholars, however, believe it was forged.
(According to Acts 4.13, Peter was illiterate.) 1:1
"Submit yourselves ... to the king ... for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well."
Monarchy is the Biblically-approved form of government whose purpose is to punish evildoers and praise do-gooders.
