“Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God”
This was Benjamin Franklin’s design for the seal of the US. I love the motto, which speaks volumes about the radical call to challenge oppression, tyranny and persecution which is at the heart of the Gospel. How, then, have they made “Christianity” so respectable, when it clearly demonstrates itself to be the most subversive movement in the world.
It is the desire of God for tyranny to be overcome, for the captives to be freed, for the slavery of sin to be defeated in the victory of the Cross. It is therefore right to strive for freedom, equality and to oppose reaction. Franklin understood this. Bravo.
