The case for christians to go to court

Acts 16

37 But Paul said unto them, They have beaten us openly uncondemned, being Romans, and have cast us into prison; and now do they thrust us out privily? nay verily; but let them come themselves and fetch us out.  -kjv

37 But Paul said to the officers: “They beat us publicly without a trial, even though we are Roman citizens, and threw us into prison. And now do they want to get rid of us quietly? No! Let them come themselves and escort us out.”  -niv

37 But Paul said to them, “They beat us in public without a trial, although we are Roman citizens, and threw us in jail. And now are they going to smuggle us out secretly? Certainly not! On the contrary, let them come themselves and escort us out!”  -hcsb

Context:

Paul cast out the fortune-telling demon in a slave girl and the owner of the slave girl lost money because of that incident. The owner of the slave girl accused Paul and Silas of disorderly behavior and rebelling against the Romans. The mob attacked Paul and Silas and the magistrate threw them into jail. Later, Paul and Silas were released from jail and the magistrate wanted to settle the case quietly.

Application:

In this case, Paul used the law for his defense. In the same way, christians should go to court to defend their rights to exercise their religion if the law of the land are still on their side.

Heard this from Moody Presents – Dr Paul Nyquist on May 22, 2016.

  1. Go to Court to stand up for our religion. In the time we now live in America today it is still legal to attempt to stand up for our religion. However the courts of the world and even The United States are so corrupt and Our God is becoming so hated we would probably lose our case. I recall God’s Scripture tells us NOT to take our brother to court to settle a matter. Two Christians should settle out of court. I would not be afraid to enter court to uphold my religion given to me by my God. I would expect to lose any case where God was mentioned. At the correct time our God & Savior will be the final judge. He is the honest and totally true judge. This will be the only time a court case will be tried honestly. Human judges are bought for money. They are as bad as some of the worst people they are now judging.
