Reflections on Resistance

“It is hoped that but few will think the subject of [this sermon] an improper one to be discoursed on in the pulpit, under a notion that this is preaching politics, instead of Christ. However, to remove all prejudices of this sort, I beg it may be remembered that ‘all Scripture is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.’ Why, then, should not those parts of Scripture which relate to civil government be examined and explained from the desk, as well as others?”

from the Preface of Dr. Mayhew’s published sermon

I hope many will take the time to read this….

    This sermon is considered to be the foundation of the clergy’s role in the “Presbyterian Rebellion”. Sacred Scripture, Sacred War outlines this very well.
