Civil Disobedience and Christian Schools-A Biblical Perspective

From: Volume IV, Issue 1: Fall 1983 Pages 59-66


There has been an increasing tendency in recent years for Christians to adopt a more militant posture regarding what are perceived to be excessive intrusions by government into the affairs of churches and church-related institutions. This militancy has been influenced, if not exacerbated, by contemporary personalities who claim that the touchstone for determination of whether obedience is owed to any government is the manifestation of a secular humanism within that government. The purpose of this article is to examine whether reliance on secular humanism as the basis for civil disobedience might produce effects inconsistent with a biblical pattern of behavior.
