Romans 13 and the Government

“It seems that every time someone such as myself attempts to encourage our Christian brothers and sisters to resist an unconstitutional or otherwise reprehensible government policy, we hear the retort, ‘What about Romans Chapter 13? We Christians must submit to government. Any government. Read your Bible, and leave me alone,’ or words to that effect.

“No doubt, some who use this argument are sincere. They are only repeating what they have heard their pastor and other religious leaders say. On the other hand, let’s be honest enough to admit that some who use this argument are just plain lazy, apathetic, and indifferent. And Romans 13 is their escape from responsibility. I suspect this is the much larger group, by the way.”

Read “Romans 13 Revisited” by Chuck Baldwin.
