Are We To Obey God’s Law or Mans Law?

Obey God’s Law:
1. (Acts 5:29) – “But Peter and the apostles answered and said, We must obey God rather than men.”

Obey Man’s Law:
1. (Romans 13:1) – “Let every person be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.”

2. (1 Peter 2:13) – “Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether to a king as the one in authority,”

Our absolute commission is to obey God. Christians are to follow human law with the exception of when human law infringes upon God’s Law. God tells us in scripture to also obey human laws, so we should. The other side of it is that if Man’s Law collides with God’s Law we are to obey God over Man.

God Bless
