Stand up or shut up? (Ecclesiastes 8:1-9)

God calls his people to submit to those in authority. But is there ever a time for civil disobedience? What happens if the state outlaws Christianity? What then? When do I take a stand and when do I shut up?

(Spoiler alert: I have now finished working through Ecclesiastes and there will be 38 episodes in total. I’ve been uploading these brief messages to my macarisms blog to make them available to people. However, this isn’t the best delivery medium for video. It is better to subscribe to my YouTube channel to access all the talks and watch in sequence or pick out selected topics. I will complete Ecclesiastes on macarisms, but after that I recommend subscribing to YouTube. It’s very easy – just click on the video link and you will be taken to You Tube where you can hit the Subscribe button.)

  1. Thanks Dave. A balanced appreciation of authority which keeps God over that authority which He has ordained for good.
