Absolute sovereignty is what I love to ascribe to God. God’s sovereignty has ever appeared to me a great part of his glory. It has often been my delight to approach God, and adore him as a sovereign God.
— Jonathan Edwards
If it be asked of the obedience due unto the prince and unto the magistrate, it answereth that all obedience in the Lord is to be rendered. And if it come to pass that any other be asked, it so refuseth that it disobeyeth not in preferring obedience to the great God before that which is to be given to mortal man.
