When the Obamacare’s abortion mandate was announced early last year, Chuck Colson was leading the way in explaining to Christians what was at stake. Not many Americans were paying attention then. But as the effects of the mandate have come to fruition with businesses like Hobby Lobby, more Americans are beginning to see how much of a threat the mandate really is to religious liberty. I think it’s work revisiting what Colson said about the abortion mandate and civil disobedience just two months before he passed away. The video is below. Here’s an excerpt:
We have come to the point—I say this very soberly—when if there isn’t a dramatic change is circumstances, we as Christians may well be called upon to stand in civil disobedience against the actions of our own government. That would break my heart as a former Marine Captain loving my country, but I love my God more… I’ve made up my mind—sober as that decision would have to be—that I will stand for the Lord regardless of what my state tells me.
