Christians Will Need to Practice Civil Disobedience?
Southern Baptist leader Richard Land says that Christians should prepare themselves for civil disobedience if they have to treat people equally and are not allowed to suppress the rights of others through antiquated bigotry.
Leaders at this week’s National Religious Broadcasters conference warned Christians may soon be forced to practice civil disobedience.
Southern Baptist leader Richard Land and NRB board member Janet Parshall cited same-sex marriage and President Obama’s birth control mandate as the reason why.
Land said those issues are non-negotiable, even at the cost of paying fines and going to jail.
Parshall said today’s Christians may have to decide whether to “bow our knee” to government or to God.
I suppose they don’t like this Bible verse very much “Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God.”
Bigotry and confirmation bias unite! Take what you need and ignore the rest…
