Virginia Christian Alliance
Happily married to her husband, Harry, for 32 years with 3 children and one grandchild. Elaine has a Bachelors degree in Medical Technology from David Lipscomb University. She has worked part time for Patient First for 19 years as a Medical Technologist. She has been a Bible teacher to youth most of her adult life. Her passion, however, for the past 30 years has been her desire to see the holocaust of abortion come to an end. This has taken various forms of activism ranging from sidewalk counseling at abortion facilities, involvement in numerous political campaigns, to networking with pastors. Elaine also serves as the coordinator for the National Day of Prayer in Chesterfield County.

When Tolerance is Intolerable Or A Christian Response to Unjust Laws
I. The purpose of government according to Scripture I Peter 2:14 to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right.
II. Biblical directive to submit to the governing authorities
Romans 13 and I Peter 2:13-14
III. Peter and John refuse to submit to the governing body of the Sanhedrin Acts 4:1-20
and again in Acts 5:28-29.

a. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego Daniel 3: 1-20
b. Rahab Joshua 2:1-22

Commonality among these examples: they were all told to do something that violated God’s law.
