In a certain sense, Christians are citizens of two worlds. We belong to the Kingdom of God, which is supreme and eternal. We also live in a world with manifold nations and kingdoms. Since Christians serve the King of kings, why should we be subject to the authorities of this world? Why should we obey governors, presidents, and kings who do not recognize the Lordship of Christ? Dr. Sproul explains why Christians ought to obey the civil magistrate, as he talks about “Civil Obedience.”
