When the State Becomes God

Selected highlights from this sermon.

What should Christians do when the state becomes hostile, restricting the freedom of religion? Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego encountered this firsthand when the king of Babylon mandated that everyone worship the same idol. Many gave in, but they did not. Why?

They entrusted themselves to God’s sovereign hands. Their immediate well-being was less important to them than honoring the one true God. Though God saved them from the fiery furnace, He didn’t have to. They did what was right, and let God determine the outcome.
