Obedient Disobedience

‘Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.’ Romans 13:1 (NIV)

When Laws Contradict The Word

The Bible tells us to submit to governing authorities and obey them. But at a certain point when laws are at odds with the commands of God, we must decide whether to obey Him or the rulers of our nation. The people of God are called to live in peace and not rebellion, yet there would seem to be clear examples in Scripture where God’s people decided to follow their consciences. When exactly have we reached that point?

This clip forms part of the #BeEquipped series – conversations around contemporary issues facing the church. You can find other videos from the series here.
