Should a Christian obey God or man?

The apostles were brought in and made to appear before the Sanhedrin to be questioned by the high priest. “We gave you strict orders not to teach in this name,” he said. “Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and are determined to make us guilty of this man’s blood.”
Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather than human beings!  Acts 5:27-29
            God always.  Man will always create rules to satisfy man, but if that rule tries to stop God and his message, disobey man.  Peter and the apostles refused to listen to the Jewish religious leaders, but even if the Romans (the government) told them to stop, they refused.  Disobeying man always has its consequences, but God will use it to embolden other Christians to stand up for their faith.
