Can the Government LAWFULLY Force Churches to Close?

A Study of Romans 13:1-5
The Bible says children are to obey their parents.  What if the Dad tells his son to rob a convenience dan preach fairviewstore?  Of course, the son should disobey this immoral command.  In fact, the Bible says that children are to obey their parents IN THE LORD, for this is right. 

Likewise, the Bible says that God established civil government for the express purpose of punishing evildoers and protecting the good that we may live peaceably in all Godliness.  When a government becomes perverted, we are not obliged to unlimited submission.  Consider Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, as they disobeyed Nebuchadnezzar.  Consider the Hebrew midwives who disobeyed Pharaoh’s command to throw the male Hebrew babies in the Nile.  Consider Daniel who disobeyed the order forbidding prayer.  Consider today, Pastor John MacArthur as he is RIGHTLY DISOBEYING AN UNJUST COMMAND TO STOP MEETING FOR CHURCH SERVICES!  (Even though MacArthur has been a leading proponent of unlimited submission to government for years).
