The Integrity of Righteous Resistance

Artwork for Walking with Integrity in Times of Adversity

Following Jesus rarely means walking through life as though it were a rosy garden. Rather, life is more often like a battleground, not a playground. Many reject Jesus and His message...

...and so they reject His messengers as well. Occasionally, then, Christians must decide to resist the authorities of their land in order to walk with integrity and follow God.

Acts 4:1–22 presents the first situation where this truth occurred. Explore what happened with Pastor Chuck Swindoll so that you can find guidance and strength in case God calls you to live in a time when you must uphold the integrity of righteous resistance.
