The Civic Duty of the Christian

The civic duty of the Christian can be summarized thusly: live as a Christian.  Abstain from evil (in all its forms, manifestations and appearances as Scripture rightly interpreted knows it and not as culture defines it) and do good (as Scripture rightly interpreted knows it and not as culture defines it).  Anything or anyone who urges you to depart from living as a Christian can safely be ignored because it is better to obey God than man.

That is the civic duty of the Christian.
