Resistance Theology

Tyranny is a common theme in the Bible. God knew it would be a problem so he provided principles by which people could defuse a potentially revolutionary set of conditions. These biblical principles played a major role in the establishment of our republic. This kept our revolution from degenerating into a massive bloodbath like that which occurred in the French Revolution. Unfortunately, our current government has joined hands with social media, the news media, corporate America, the educational systems and liberal churches to push us into a socialist/communist state direction. This will lead to conditions that are ripe for revolution. However, God has provided ways to deal with this situation with biblical concepts found in the Bible. We need to try these methods first and return to living under God's law before we resort to revolution. In this section we will discuss these biblical alternatives. We will start out by listening to a presentation by Doug Wilson discussing the biblical possibilities for dealing with tyrants.
