Such was the case in a sermon titled “The Christian and the State: Lessons from KY County Clerk Kim Davis’ Civil Disobedience” given by Pastor Steve Nutter of Providence Reformed Baptist Church

During the sermon the pastor mentioned that good Christian men will disagree on some of these things and that this may raise more questions than it answers, but either way I think this will challenge, edify, and give us much to meditate on as we live as Citizens of Heaven while on this Earth.
