Always Obey God!

“Peter and the other Apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.” (Acts 5:29) That is, when man-made laws come into competition with God’s Word, we must always obey God only. Jesus has instructed us to “Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s (civil law); and unto God the things that are God’s.”[church law] (Matt. 22:21) But as C. H. Spurgeon said, “Civil rulers must not touch religion, that is the sphere of God alone.” So then, dear Christian our conscience is to be governed by God’s Word and by our civil law in the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights which “Prohibits government interference in the free exercise of our religion” and in interference of “the right of the people peaceably to assemble.”
