Is Civil Disobedience OK?

Q. Thank you so much for the time you have given to Bible Study and the ministry you are doing today. Many are benefiting from your knowledge. May God bless you richly.

I have a question: What does Scripture have to say about Christians rebelling against a repressive government?

A. The only time Biblical figures refused to obey their leaders was when obeying violated God’s Law. For example, Daniel’s 3 friends refused to worship the statue (Daniel 3), Daniel himself refused to stop praying to God (Daniel 6), and Peter and John disobeyed the High Priest’s order to stop preaching the Gospel (Acts 4:18-20).
