When are we not to obey our parents?

Share |

If our parents, our boss, the law of our country or anyone else commands us to do something that is contrary to God’s Word, which we cannot therefore with a good conscience do, we are to obey God rather than men.

Acts 5:29: We ought to obey God rather than men.

Assignment: Read Ex. 1:15-21: The Hebrew midwives did not kill the male infants even though the king commanded them to do so, and Esther 3:13-5:2: Esther defied the law in order to save her people. Consider: Could situations arise today, that would prevent us from obeying a law or a given command?
