In this article I will first address the strongest yet still unsatisfactory argument for an obligation to obey the law, the argument that the government and its officers are obligated to obey the law. I will then consider the weaker, more satisfactory argument that citizens have an obligation to obey the law. I will conclude by taking up the issue that I find more interesting and important: the absence of a biblical basis for an obligation to obey the law.
