George Alvarado, Michael Coughlin, and Chuck Ivey discuss what it means to submit to the government or practice civil disobedience. Is there a balance? Does submission to the government mean you’re a statist?

If you call out the injustices and practice civil disobedience, does that mean you are not practicing Romans 13?

How do we know when “enough is enough?”

What should “taking action” look like?

Should believers take up arms against the government?

Join us as we answer these questions, and others, on this episode of Roundtable at Things Above Us.
