We must obey God rather than men

I don’t want to stand before God on Judgment Day and tell my Creator that the reason I violated his clear command in Scripture to gather with the church to worship or restructured my church in a way that is not prescribed in Scripture was because I chose to obey a government that had violated its own laws to command me to do so. I personally believe the time to say, we must obey God rather than men,” is already upon us. It’s just a matter of timing. The government has abandoned its highest duty, we must not abandon ours. —Tom Buck, Revolution or Obedience? A Response to Jonathan Leeman’s Position Regarding Civil Disobedience
