Thomson, John H.
John Brown of Haddington (1722-1787) summarizes in this very helpful and timely work the problem and solution to the corrupt laws and the tyranny in high places that Christians so much decry in the nations of this world. Even Christians have been misled to believe that civil government is outside the sphere of God's Law and authority. We hear much about civil rights, but do we even hear that a moral wrong cannot be a civil right? We hear much about the rights of man in a democracy to rule themselves by his won laws, but do we even hear civil rulers say anything about the sovereign rights of God and His Moral Law over the nations?
