It is right to obey God

“And the high priest asked them, saying,

Did we not command you by a command that you not teach in this name? And, behold, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine and intend to bring on us the blood of this man.

But answering Peter and the apostles said,

It is right to obey God rather than man.

The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom you seized, hanging Him on a tree. This One God has exalted as a Ruler and Savior to His right hand, to give to Israel repentance and remission of sins.

And we are His witnesses of these things, and also the Holy Spirit, whom God gave to those obeying Him.”

— Acts 5.27-32
