My Life Verse

God causes all things to work together for good, for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose...

Throughout my life, in all its ups and downs, this has been the one constant truth I can confess.

You write: . . .There comes a point where, as with Daniel, we Christians need to remember that our duty to the State is not blind obedience, nor always passive submission, but intelligent use of our freedom in Christ.. .

This is good stuff -- thoughts worth praying about, esp. in light of the current Bible study that is engaging my brain and heart: Revelation. We just finished chapter 17.
Nothing can assuage or redirect the current coming disaster, can it? Therefore where we stand, and how is crucial. Matthew 11:29-20

An especially relevant reminder for American Christians, who (in contradistinction to Christians in many other lands) live under a constitution that explicitly prohibits the government from engaging in many of the activities it is engaged in today. In that sense, sitting idle while the government does things it is not supposed to is *more* disobedient than rising up and saying 'NO!'.

Some measure of disobedience to our governors (via submission to the constitution) was recognized as an integral aspect of citizenship by many of the founding fathers. As TJ said:

"I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical."
