    As you listen to this series of sermons you will understand why Pastor Weaver is considered by many to be the leading expositor today on the subject of the Christian and civil government. This is a masterful study of both the scriptures and history as they relate to this subject. You will most certainly be blessed.

    “ very valuable insights into scripture ”
    Tried to send a letter to John Weaver using the address in the book Civil Govt and the Christian, but it came back undeliverable. Anyone have a valid address for Pastor Weaver? Thanks

    “ just a comment on taking up arms ”
    The state that Paul exhorted to be subject to was indeed evil and oppressive. The revolution that one of the listeners want is actually what the elite wants. They are provoking people to rebellion just as they have done before during history. We as christians shall expose evil and warn others, but we are not called to take up arms against the evildoers.I don't think that it should be forbidden to have a gun in the house, because that would only give the criminals the guts to rob just any house they want. Just by knowing that there COULD be a weapon in the house prevents some criminals from breaking in. But christians are not supposed to kill!!!!

    “ Trumpet blast against blind submission to the sta ”
    There is not one state in the world that I am aware of that upholds and obeys God's righteous law, therefore there is not one state that fits Paul's description of rulers of whom Paul exhorts us to be subject to! Rom 13:3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: Rom 13:4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. The mark of the beast is allegiance to a wicked civil government which is a servant of satan and not a minister of God! Therefore let all Christians around the world who love the Lord Jesus Christ rise up against the evildoers Psa 94:6 and proclaim submission to God's law and resistance to tyranny! We must not obey the statutes of heathen rulers which are country to the word of God! 2Kings 17:7-8

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    According to the IRS,501 c-3 Christian churches, ministries, and organizations may not:... This is not so, as pastor Weaver has pointed out, the Christian Church should not be a 501-c-3 in the first place. A Christian Church CAN do all the things that this list said it can not do. A 501-c-3 charity can not. Thank you Pastor Weaver for all your insight to the true nature of Godly Government.

    “ Render to God the things that are Gods ”

Address homosexual rights or the pushing of a sodomite agenda in schools Appeal to peoples' emotions by employing an evangelization method such as "fire and brimstone" preaching) Discuss or identify threats to Christianity.Criticize the civil powers of the the Vatican United Nations or Council on Foreign Relations Highlight or otherwise bring attention to immorality of public officials or corruption in government. Complain of government persecution ,such as happened at Waco, Ruby Ridge, and elsewhere Isa 59:14 - And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.

    “ Extremely Good Sermon! ”
    This is one of the best sermons I’ve heard, dealing with authority and government; I wish that the rest of the Christian world would wake up and realize that government is not absolute authority! I believe that the time for another revolution is at hand, and as in the revolutionary war preceding us, our motto should be “No King But King Jesus!”
