Should Christianity Cause You to Disobey the Law of the Land?
Rebellion is unfaithfulness, either to our conviction or to the tradition that must be adhered to. Divine law (God given law) represents Christianity. It is obvious that every other law take their root or get from it. Much of the time, divine law barely negates the tradition that must be adhered to.
The sacred writing states
“Give each spirit a chance to be subject unto the administration power. For there is no power however of God: the powers that be are appointed of God. Whosoever in this manner opposes the powers opposes the mandate of God: and they that oppose might get to themselves punishment. For rulers are not a dread to acts of kindness, but rather to the abhorrence. Wither thou then not fear the force? do what is great, and thou shalt have applause for the same:… Render along these lines to every one of their levy: tribute to whom tribute is expected; custom to whom custom… (Rom. 13:1-7)
Notwithstanding, all devotees are mindful to comply with the tradition that must be adhered to until it gets to be wicked to do as such. At the point when there is by all accounts a contention, Christian ought to comply with God’s law. Whoever abuses any of the laws will pay the punishment.
A man came to me once in a while back; he asserted to be conceived again and needs to know whether what the Lord Jesus said, that “… Render in this way unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s…” (Matt. 22:21) apply to paying off one’s direction if got in any infringement.
He said that the tradition that must be adhered to does not allow the transportation of any produce after 7 pm crosswise over state limit. Any vehicle discovered abusing this law will be seized. The vehicle won’t be discharged until the driver had paid the due fine for that infringement.
He however said, that a few drivers damaged this law and escape with it by paying off the law requirement officers. He is currently gotten in abusing this law; he needs to know as a Christian on the off chance that he can influence the law requirement officers so that his vehicle won’t seized.
As a Christian, you can’t reward. The way that the world is doing it doesn’t give you the permit to ignore God’s law and the tradition that must be adhered to. In the event that the law implementation officer does not get you, you will in any case be blameworthy before our omniscient and ubiquitous God. To exacerbate the circumstance, on the off chance that you are gotten, you will be blameworthy and accused of Carrying produce after 7 pm, attempting to incite an officer with fix and you will endure as a criminal.
As Christian, 3things you can do
1. Arrangement your excursion legitimately with the goal that you will have the capacity to make it to your destination before 7pm, taking all things into account.
2. In the event of any mechanical breakdown or crisis, disclose your circumstance to the law implementation officer. In the event that he acknowledged you pardon, great; if not, give him a chance to seize your vehicle and recover it the next day.
3. Stick with it in your purpose of cause or closest town before 7pm and proceed with your adventure the following day.
The Bible censures pay off. On the off chance that you pay off, you have ignored God’s law; and you have denied your confidence: you are a delinquent. The law is not illegal of God; along these lines, you have abused the tradition that must be adhered to, you are a transgressor.
“Give what is Caesar to Caesar” is not to pay the villain with our great substance, but instead, make the wisest decision and comply with the tradition that must be adhered to, in light of the fact that the law secures us. We ought not be uninformed of the tradition that must be adhered to, they are not against our conviction.
Noncompliance is unfaithfulness to the pledge of God. It mirrors individuals’ abhorrent heart. On the off chance that you escape with it, the outcome is backwardness instead of advancement bearing of your conviction. It sets the phase for losing the faith. Try not to endure as a miscreant.
