Obeying God Rather Than Man (Acts 4:18-22)
Scripture: Acts 4:18–4:22
We discuss implications of Peter's statement that they would obey God rather than man. Attacks are launched against the preaching of Christ and the gospel. It is important to emphasize that whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. We also discuss what it means to be witnesses concerning Christ. The Christian's relationship to civil authorities is important and taught in Romans 13. In the gospels and Acts, people often side with Jesus and His apostles while the religious leaders rejected the Lord and His representatives.
