Question: What if your parents are telling you to do something something ungodly? Do you do what they say or do you do what you’ve been taught in God’s eyes?
Remember the following reasons you should resist government. They will apply to your parents as well.
- If asked to violate God’s command. (Acts 5…when authorities arrest the disciples for preaching and then order them not to teach) They went right back to preaching. We must obey God rather than men. (Acts 5:28,29)
- If asked to do an immoral act. Examples: falsifying records for “security reasons.” Perjury for the sake of the department; covering for subordinates by lying.
- Never go against Christian conscience.
