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