CHRISTIAN DUTY TO RESIST TYRANNY (cont.)

69.43.13.172

People know for what end they set up and maintain their governors, and they are the proper judges when the execute their trust as they ought to do it.... Till people find themselves greatly abused and oppressed by their governors, they are not apt to complain; and whenever they do, in fact, find themselves thus abused and oppressed, they must be stupid not to complain. To say that subjects in general are not the proper judges when their governors oppress them and play the tyrant, and when the defend their rights, administer justice impartially, and promote the public welfare, is as great treason as ever man uttered. It is treason, not against one single man, but the state against the whole body politic; it is treason against mankind, it is treason against common sense, it is treason against God....
