How do you feel about jury duty for a Christian?

If you were called for jury duty, would you serve, or in what manner would you repond?

There is no such thing as preaching Christ and Him crucified, unless we preach what nowadays is called Calvinism. It is a nickname to call it Calvinism; Calvinism is the gospel, and nothing else. - C.H. Spurgeon

Yes I would serve as a juror if called upon. Truth and justice are desirable, even here on earth. grin

Okay, thanks for the feedback.

Does anyone know of any scriptural reason that a Christian may choose not to participate in jury duty?

No. I think the bible would affirm submission to the call of jury duty. Christ always appeared before the judges and rulers. Besides, we get our legal system of operations from scripture, do we not?
