Circa early 21st century, Christians are increasingly pressured to conform to government action that goes against our scripture belief. There is a fair amount of static and confusion when it comes to obedience. Where is the line? Do you cross it? When do you cross it? Robert W. Yarbrough presents his take on the Crossway blog.
When authorities overstep, believers may need to “obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29). They may need to say to a king whose command is blasphemous, “We will not serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up” (Dan. 3:18). Jesus defied the extrabiblical Sabbath ordinances of his time. Paul’s counsel in Romans 13 assumes a government acting within its God-appointed parameters. When it does not, other measures may be in order.
