October 8, 2015

This week we’re discussing God’s view on civil disobedience. In general, God demands that we obey the law, but there are exceptions.

In verse 19 we read, “But Peter and John replied, “Which is right in God’s eyes: to listen to you, or to him? You be the judges! As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.”

Peter and John had an obligation to proclaim God. When forced to decide between proclaiming God versus obeying the law, God wins.
