The Doctrine of Lesser Magistrates

I thought this was an excellent video blog by Doug Wilson and Ben Merkle on a Christian’s response to gun control and tyrannical government from a biblical perspective. I am ashamed to say that I was unfamiliar with the Doctrine of Interposition (Lesser Magistrates) until last  evening, but it is something that we should all be educated about, or at least mindful of. It is a beautiful Christian doctrine first and foremost, and something we can claim at the local and state level, politically speaking. After watching this short video, I’d recommend the following link for a good read on the doctrine of interposition. From it you can read many historical examples from  both the Bible and the church, including from Calvin’s Institutes, as well as the political application of the doctrine.
