Obey the government, for- God is the one who has put it there. There is no government anywhere that God has not placed in power. (Romans 13:1)

Are there times when we should not obey the government?

We can never allow government to force us to disobey God. Interestingly, Jesus and his apostles never disobeyed the government for personal reasons.

When they disobeyed, it was in order to follow their higher loyalty to God. Their disobedience was not cheap-they were threatened, beaten, thrown into jail, tortured, and executed for their convictions.

Like them, we should never disobey for matters of preference or convenience. lf we are compelled to disobey the people who have authority over us based on our convictions, we must also be ready to accept the consequences. .
