Short Takes: Must Christians Always Obey Government?

February 23, 2021 at 5:52 PM Leave a comment

Just a few thoughts on Romans 13 and whether or not Christians must always obey the governmental authorities. I find it fascinating that so many pastors and commentators today think that Paul’s words stand alone without any sort of context. Yet, if we look at numerous incidents from the life of Jesus, Paul and Peter, it appears that maybe Paul’s words in Romans 13:1-4 as well as Peter’s in 1 Peter 2 are far more nuanced than we might think.

The video is just over 10 minutes (my apologies as I want to keep these 10 minutes and under). If you have comments, or questions, I’d be interested in hearing them. There’s actually quite a number of good articles on this subject by folks who don’t necessarily believe Paul meant that in all cases, we must obey the government (far different from actually just being “subject to”).

Here is the link to the video at SermonAudio.com/studygrowknow where either the video itself can be played or simply the audio.
