12th Article of Faith: Must Christians Obey Government?


The first misconception among Christians of all sects is that Romans 13 requires them to obey all government edicts and that resisting government is the same as resisting God.

The second misconception is that the 12th Article of Faith gives a similar idea.


In this special presentation, Defending Utah is joined by Constitutional scholars to discuss the historical and practical application of this idea.

After watching this video, you’re very likely to see the 12th article of faith and Romans 13 different than you’ve ever seen them.
