David Engelsma has said, "Uncritically to yield to the decrees of the state in the matter of public worship is indefensible. 'We must obey God‚Ä¶'" This sermon faces the issue of obedience and disobedience to magistrates (civil authorities) head on.
Biblical principles. Very good, biblical, principles. I thank the Lord for this sermon. It was very useful.
More power to you Hello brother, we have prayed for you through the SermonAudio prayer group. I commend you for your boldness and willingness to go to jail. When our governor mandated that we not meet for church with more than ten people back in April, we kept meeting, though we had no real fear of arrest of fines. So we were not tested to the degree you have been. But I suspsect that more difficult days are coming for us. May God continue to give you and your congregation courage to glorify Him!
Great & Important Sermon! This message is worth hearing. A well-reasoned examination of Romans 13 on government's authority and limits is given at a most appropriate time.
