National Census: Good or Evil? (2 Samuel 24:1-9)

Phillip Kayser, PhD, October 5, 2014
Part of the Life of David series, preached at a Sermon service

Much controversy surrounds the American Community Survey. This sermon gives a detailed analysis of what the Bible teaches on the subject of a census and demonstrates that the ACS is both unbiblical and unconstitutional. But more than that, this sermon shows why God treated even David’s more minimal census as a great evil that needed to be resisted. This passage adds to our general understanding of Biblical civics as calling for very limited government.
