The Christian Response to Earthly GovernmentSubmitted by gptnomoney on Tue, 08/05/2014 - 11:46
Contrary to popular belief, God has a political plan for how we engage in government here on the earth. And even though I’ve mentioned it before, I don’t think we completely understand what our Christian responsibility and authority is in our worldly government. So I want to point out a few things from the Word of God so when someone asks, you’ll KNOW how to respond from a Christian perspective. That means I’m going to talk about Romans 13:1-4. "Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil."
