What does submission to every ordinance of man mean? Listen to this lesson to learn that the only laws that are to be resisted are those that contradict biblical commands. Hear about the Magdeburg Confession and how nine pastors resisted laws which infringed on their right to choose their religion. See that the believer living under a pagan government is to do the revealed will of God, do good and live peaceably during their lives.

Hear a panorama of biblical rebels who were doing what was right. Find out that tyrannical government is to be resisted. See if Martin Luther’s rebellion against the Roman Catholic Church was just.

Must we do everything our government tells us to do no matter what they demand of us? Listen to this lesson to learn biblical principles that answer the question of whether it is ever right to say we cannot obey something that is ordered. Hear a historical summary beginning with Martin Luther of how the Bible has shown when a government is unjust. See what is the difference between the American War for Independence and what is going on in the rebellion and riots of today.
