Can't Touch This (Jesus Christ and Constitutional Rights)

Part of a series (see 1, 2, and 3.)

And it at least tangentially relates to this comment from Dan Soschin, raising the question as to whether civil disobedience in South Africa and Malaysia was/is effective.

As for Constitutional rights before God, this only occurs if your "god" is the civil religion "god" of the United States. When faced with the one true God, different rules come into play.

Matthew 10:24-28 (New International Version)
New International Version (NIV)

24"A student is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master. 25It is enough for the student to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master. If the head of the house has been called Beelzebub,[a] how much more the members of his household!

26"So do not be afraid of them. There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. 27What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs. 28Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

Matthew 10:25 Greek Beezeboul or Beelzeboul


In other words, do the right thing because God sees right through you.

I don't know how many times I have told my students at Teen Challenge that they need to do the right thing because it is the right things. Often they just don't want to get into trouble. However, God sees it all regardless if I see it or any other staff member.
