God rather than men...
The apostles' concern was not to defend themselves but to
uplift Christ. *We must obey God rather than men!* they
said (Acts 5:29), and in so doing laid down the principle
of civil and ecclesiastical disobedience. To be sure,
Christians are called to be conscientious citizens and
generally speaking, to submit to human authorities. But if
the authority concerned misuses its God-given power to
command what he forbids or forbid what he commands, then
the Christian's duty is to disobey the human authority in
order to obey God's.
grace and peace to you,
For Mercy Street Ministries, I'm Stan Baldwin.
