A Biblical Response To Unbiblical Mandates

Written by Doug Giles on September 2, 2023

Tyrants are ready to exploit the return of elections and the sniffle season — are you ready for what they’ll be throwing our way?

We’ve already gone through this pandemic dance once before.

This time around we’ll get to see which of us have learned some important lessons about government tyranny, and which of us have not.

Some of our Founding Fathers were fond of saing ‘resistance to tyrants is obedience to God’.

But nobody wants to be a dumb punk who is being persecuted for stupidity’s sake rather than the gospel’s sake. If we’re going to be a rebel with a cause, it’s good to know whether God’s got your back.

Fortunately, there is a way to know where that line lands.

This week, Doug takes a break from the series in Mark and looks at what Scripture has to say about how regular believers can know whether the government authority we deal with day by day is giving lawful orders we need to take seriously vs. when the time comes to give tyrannical diktats the scorn they so richly deserve.

There is a line. Sometimes our ‘leaders’ cross it. This week’s message is all about putting a clearly-defined edge on that ‘hazy’ line. Because if we’re doing this pandemic do-si-do again, somebody’s sure to cross it.

John The Baptist: A Rude Awakening Precedes A Great Awakening.

This timely little tome chronicles the politically incorrect ministry of one of God’s most effective wildmen, John the Baptist, who prepared the way for Christ’s ministry.

The abrasive message of repentance John preached 2000 years ago is still confrontational and offensive today — but it is also life-changing.

In our putrid, worldly culture that has turned away from God, this book is a must-read for every Christian.

Available in paperback for those of you who like the feel of the pages in your hot, little hands, on Kindle to keep it right at your fingertips, and as an epic Audiobook.
