Dilemna

#1
Romans 13 (New International Version)


Submission to Governing Authorities

1 Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which
God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2 Consequently,
whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who
do so will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but
for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what
is right and you will be commended. 4 For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But
if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants,
agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. 5 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the
authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.

And then we read Daniel 3 where we see Daniel refusing to bow down to the golden calf, for their
disobedience to the governing authorities Daniel and his friends were put
into the fiery furnace where Jesus protected them, for there is one higher than the authorities

And so we come to "Joe Blogs" and "Joe Blogs has a word of knowledge for "Mr brown"

This word of knowledge brings a "dilemna" for Mr Blogs because although God is telling him to give
this word of knowledge to Mr Brown, it involves giving out information that can only be known by
Mr Brown and maybe his family. This information is personal but will bring Mr Brown to God and show
him that God exists and is real , this is Mr Browns "Crossroads" where he will see God for the first time

BUT it means controvening " data protection acts" and "privacy policies"

Mr Browns wife decides there is no way Mr Blogs could have known this information and brings out
a lawsuit against him

So is God above the this authority ?

Should a person use a gift to brings others to God even if it means going against the governing authorities ?
