Publisher Description

"When government protects rights given by God, then it is owed obedience, submission, and honor," Johnson writes. "But when government violates those rights, Christians are no longer bound to submit to laws that do not serve the purpose for which God made government." 

Developing the Puritans' understanding of religious freedom, Johnson shows how Christ's followers have reasoned through this tension in past centuries, and he identifies biblical principles for navigating government restrictions in the future. 

Johnson reminds his listeners that God made government with a purpose, and that purpose makes the world livable for believers. Government is good, but it is not absolute, and Christians are not bound to treat it as if it were. So sit back, and let Johnson take you on a tour of what the Bible teaches about government, and why we should be more like Daniel, by recognizing the limits on our obedience to earthly authorities.
