Scans And Pat Downs

Q. Praise to God & blessings to you & your family. I have a concern about the new scanning technology and “Pat Downs” at the airports.  Since the scans, in essence, show a naked body & the “Pat Downs” are so intrusive, are we committing a sin when we submit to them? I understand our only other option is to travel via ground transportation or stay home.


A. The Bible tells us to be obedient to our leaders (Romans 13:1).  The only exception I can find is if they require us to worship a false god.  Then we’re supposed to refuse (Daniel 3:16-18).  I believe submitting to the scanners and pat downs is a violation of our constitutional rights but I don’t think it’s a sin.  And if you believe what you hear, these procedures will soon become a part of our ground transportation as well.
