S1E20 – Holding Rulers Accountable (Lex Rex Part 11)

Part I: Law of the Day – “If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son who will not obey the voice of his father or the voice of his mother, and, though they discipline him, will not listen to them, then his father and his mother shall take hold of him and bring him out to the elders of his city at the gate of the place where he lives, and they shall say to the elders of his city, ‘This our son is stubborn and rebellious; he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton and a drunkard.’ Then all the men of the city shall stone him to death with stones. So you shall purge the evil from your midst, and all Israel shall hear, and fear.” (Deut. 21:18-21)

Part II: We finish looking at Lex Rex, by Samuel Rutherford. In the final chapter, Rutherford asks if rulers are accountable to the people. If they are not, then there is no argument against tyranny. If they are, then it is the responsibility of the people to hold them accountable.
