Download Audio  

Given all of thecurrent news, it is a good time to once again look into the doctrines of CivilDisobedience.  I cover some Biblical exampleswhere  God calls His people to take downcorrupt government (Hebrews 11:33 – “Who by Faith conquered kingdoms”).  But we also have the command in Romans 13 to be subject to even corruptgovernment.  I explain the exceptions to Romans 13  –the Doctrine of Lesser Magistrates.  Ialso cover the philosophy in our Declaration of Independence.   I conclude with a number of Biblical thoughtsabout our current relationship with the Federal Government.
