Albert Mohler: Law and Order and the Death of George Floyd

The video of George Floyd, a black man in Minneapolis, held down by a police officer in an arrest with his knee on the back of his neck resulted—as we now know—in his tragic death.

Commenting on the video, Art Acevedo, who is the head of the Major Cities Chiefs Association said, “I haven’t heard anybody justify this.”

The sad reality is that George Floyd is now dead.

When you look at the protests and rioting in Minneapolis, it is an ugly picture everywhere you look—and now not just in Minneapolis.

But where does this story lead?

It all comes down to the importance of the rule of law. If the rule of law breaks down, there is no rescue.

Injustice documented before our eyes cries out for justice, but justice calls out for the rule of law—in the courtroom and on the streets of America’s cities.

Lanhee Chen: China Steps Back on Promise to Hong Kong

China has now moved to exert more control over Hong Kong, ending the special treatment that was guaranteed to it when the former British colony was turned over to Beijing’s control in 1997. At the time, China promised Hong Kong would be governed for 50 years under the principle of “one country, two systems.” In other words, Hong Kong would retain its own legal system and police force through 2047.

But President Xi Jinping of China is now breaking that promise by imposing a sweeping new national security law on Hong Kong that would criminalize acts of protest against the Chinese government.

The American response was swift and appropriately strong—Secretary of State Mike Pompeo formally declared that the U.S. no longer considers Hong Kong autonomous from China.

It’s a move with numerous ramifications that will surely provoke Beijing, but sends the unmistakable signal that our support for the freedom-loving people of Hong Kong will not waver.

Jerry Bowyer: The Church and State in a Time of Pandemic

Should churches defy state shutdown orders in order to gather in person yet again?

This question goes to the heart of both America’s founding principles and the core convictions of Christianity. The early American position was strongly influenced by the Bible—and a disposition “to be subject to the governing authorities.”

But sometimes the state becomes tyrannical and forbids what God commands. What then? We reason with them, we exercise patience, we appeal to other authorities—as Paul appealed to Caesar.

When all other options have been exhausted, then we respectfully disobey.

The evangelical pastor John MacArthur recently quoted the Puritan Richard Baxter, “where he says, ‘If the magistrate, asks you to refrain from meeting because of a pestilence, you do not meet. On the other hand, if the magistrate tries to force you not to meet because of persecution of Christianity, you meet anyway.’”

That’s wisdom.
