“ Summary, Part 5 (final) ”
THIRD, let us honestly acknowledge and repent of our tendency due to remaining sin toward rebellion, both against Christ and against His rulers in this world. FOURTH, let us seek to honor our profession of faith in Christ by showing our due submission to the rulers he places over us. John the Baptist commanded the tax collectors to repent, but not to leave their jobs. FIFTH, let us realize that submission to civil authorities is not just a matter of obedience to God; it is also a matter of worship (1 Pet 2:13). SIXTH, if we want to be happy and have a good conscience, let us obey God by submitting to the authorities God has place over us. Much trial and trouble is traceable to rebellion. We are all born into the world with such a heart. Do we submit to Jesus Christ first and foremost and trust Him with those He has put over us?

“ Summary, Part 4 ”
4. ILLUSTRATIONS FROM BIBLICAL HISTORY OF LEGITIMATE CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE (43:04). a. The Hebrew midwives. They had the sixth commandment on their hearts even before it was given at Sinai. b. Daniel and his three friends. They didn’t want to be a part of a sacrifice to idols. c. The Apostles and the early church. They had the Great Commission. Who is man to forbid it? B. ANSWERING TWO OBJECTIONS TO THESE DEDUCTIONS (46:03). 1. “WE MUST NEITHER SUBMIT TO WICKED RULERS NOR OBEY UNJUST LAWS”. Nero reigned while Paul and Peter wrote epistles, yet they argued for this submission. Few rulers have ever been truly righteous. 2. “WE MUST SUBMIT TO WICKED RULERS EVEN WHEN THEY REQUIRE OBEDIENCE TO LAWS THAT CONTRADICT GOD’S LAW”. These are the secularist arguments against us. Many of them have put the state in place of God. They don’t think through their implications. C. CONDLUDING PRINCIPLES FROM KIM DAVIS’ CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE APPLIED (51:14). FIRST, let us conscientiously own our duty before God to submit to the civil authorizes He has placed over us. SECOND, let us be very slow to conclude that obedience to God requires disobedience to the civil authorities He has placed over us.

“ Summary, Part 3 ”
1. CLEAR STATEMENTS FORBIDDING IT. Prov 24:21-22 – consider Rehoboam’s folly. Mt 22:17-21 – Christians live in two spheres (cf. Mt 17:24-27 – we are residents on earth, but citizens of heaven). Rom 13:1-7 – we are commanded to be submit to ruling authority because God put it there. 1 Pet 2:13-17 – submitting to ruling authority is a way of worshipping God. 2. TEXTS THAT QUALIFY AND PERMIT IT (31:20). Acts 4:19-20, 5:27-29 – the state does not have the right to order Christians to disobey God. 3. DEDUCTIONS FROM THESE TEXTS (33:57): a. Civil rulers derive their authority ultimately from God and not from man. b. Submission to God requires obedience to civil rulers. c. Rebellion against civil rulers is rebellion against God. d. God has given civil rulers authority to reward righteous behavior and to punish wicked behavior. e. Submission is due civil rulers from Christians as liberated servants of God. f. Submission to civil rulers demonstrates the reality of a Christian’s profession. Rebellion hurts our witness. g. Submission to civil rulers results in a good conscience before God. There is nothing more terrible than a bad conscience.

“ Summary, Part 2 ”
b. WHAT IS WRONG ABOUT HER CONVICTIONS (13:00): 1) that her name on a marriage license constitutes personal approval of homosexuality or homosexual marriage. Compliance is not necessarily agreement; 2) that she can serve the people of Rowan County by abdicating her sworn duty to enforce the law. She is still duty-bound to enforce the law. She could have also resigned. II. LARGER QUESTIONS SUGGESTED BY KIM DAVIS’ CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE PONDERED (16:18). A. OF HER CONSTITUTIONAL LIBERTY ALLOWING IT. Her right to free speech allows her to speak freely on the matter, even as a government employee. But she does not have the right to refuse the due process that her office mandates. B. OF HER CONSCIENCE LEADING HER TO IT (20:04). Her voicing of her convictions is honorable, but she is not to be followed. III. A BIBILICAL RESPONSE TO KIM DAVIS’ CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE PRESENTED (22:02). A. TEXTS THAT ADDRESS CIVIL (DIS)OBEDIENCE. The matter is settled by God’s word, not by anyone’s opinion.

“ Summary, Part 1 ”
As Christians, we must always approach current events biblically. This is entailed in the charge to always be ready to give an answer (1 Pet 3:15), and includes clarity on our relationship to the state as Christians. I. THE IMPORTANT MATTER OF KIM DAVIS’ CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE POSED (starting at 2:59 of the audio). A. THE OCCASION OF HER CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE (4:38). Ms. Davis, a county clerk with the duty and authority to issues marriage licenses for her county, refused on biblical grounds to issue same-sex marriage licenses after the Supreme Court ruling legalizing them. After defying a court order to do so, she was jailed and subsequently released with certain provisions. B. HER CONVICTIONS LEADING TO HER CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE (6:27). 1. STATED. She invoked God’s authority in light of the Supreme Court’s ruling and appealed to her mandate by popular election. 2. SCRUTINIZED (7:52). a. WHAT IS RIGHT ABOUT HER CONVICTIONS: 1) she views homosexuality as a sin (Lev 18:22, 1 Cor 6:9-10); 2) she understands that God’s definition of marriage prohibits homosexual marriage (Mt 19:4-5); she wants to maintain a clear conscience (Rom 14:23, cf. Acts 24:16).
