You bad mouth the New World Bible all the time,but look at this
1- ESV Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.
1-NWT Let every soul be in subjection to the superior authorities, for there is no authority except by God; the existing authorities stand placed in their relative positions by God.
2- ESV Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.
2-NWT Therefore he who opposes the authority has taken a stand against the arrangement of God; those who have taken a stand against it will receive judgment to themselves.
3- ESV For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you.
3-NWT For those ruling are an object of fear, not to the good deed, but to the bad. Do you, then, want to have no fear of the authority? Keep doing good, and you will have praise from it;
4 ESV For he is God's servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.
4-NWT for it is Gods minister to you for your good. But if you are doing what is bad, be in fear: for it is not without purpose that it bears the sword; for it is Gods minister, an avenger to express wrath upon the one practicing what is bad.
5- ESV Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience.
5 NWT There is therefore compelling reason for YOU people to be in subjection, not only on account of that wrath but also on account of [YOUR] conscience.
6 ESV This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God's servants, who give their full time to governing.
6 NWT For that is why YOU are also paying taxes; for they are Gods public servants constantly serving this very purpose.
7 ESV Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.
7 NWT Render to all their dues, to him who [calls for] the tax, the tax; to him who [calls for] the tribute, the tribute; to him who [calls for] fear, such fear; to him who [calls for] honor, such honor.
Paul did not tell them, though, to be in absolute subjection with no regard for God, Gods Word and their Christian conscience.
They knew that Jesus had worshiped only Jehovah, that Jesus had refused to let the people make him king and that he had told Peter to put away his sword. They conscientiously adhered to their Masters lead.
The book On the Road to CivilizationA World History (by Heckel and Sigman, pages 237, 238) reports:Christians refused to share certain duties of Roman citizens. The Christians ... felt it a violation of their faith to enter military service. They would not hold political office. They would not worship the emperor.
Regarding political and military controversies of their day, Jesus disciples maintained strict neutrality. In the year 66 C.E. the Jews of the Roman province of Judea revolted against Caesar. The Roman army quickly surrounded Jerusalem.
What did Christians in the city do?
They remembered Jesus counsel to stay neutral and to get out from between the warring armies. When the Roman army temporarily withdrew, the Christians seized the opportunity and fled across the Jordan River into the mountainous region of Pella.(Luke 21:20-24)
In their neutrality they served as a faithful pattern for later Christians.

Luke 21:20-24 says nothing like your claim of it.
