What Should a Christian’s Attitude Be Towards the Laws of Our Country?

A Christian should always obey and respect national laws because “the authorities are appointed by God” (Romans 13:1-5).

A Christian should be a good, law-abiding citizen, honestly paying his taxes. (Titus 3:1Romans 13:6-7Luke 20:25).

Nevertheless, in the very rare case that a government passes a law that goes against God’s laws (for example, if we are ordered to worship idols, or to join the army) then we must “obey God rather than men”. (See Acts 5:29).

A Christian should not take his brother to law. (1 Corinthians 6:18).
