More often than not, those who call themselves Christian are people who follow a cultrual understanding of the Goseple. They will say and do anything to keep from following the mandates found in the text of Scripture. In the historical biblical text, both in the Old and New Testaments, God sets the standard by which we are live.
Nowhere in Scripture does it say for us to follow unjust laws. If you disagreee, please, rip out the book of Ester, the section in Danile where he, Shadrach, Meshack and Abednego stood up Nebuchadnezzar. That’s just some examples in the Old Testament.
In the New Testament, you would, also, have to ignore Jesus words and actions. Jesus spoke out against lawful divorce (Mark 10:2-9), He drove out the “lawful” money changers (Matthew 21:12-13) and, before Pilate, Jesus declares His submisison to God and not man (John 19:11-12). My final example is how Peter and the apostles addressed the the Council in Acts 5:29, “We must obey God rather than men.”
There are many other examples, and many more interpritations. However, there is one clear message. The Christian is to follow the will of God not man.
