Biblical Principles for Christians and Government"

Biblical Principles for Christians and Government

How should Christians relate to their government, especially when faced with opposition or oppression? In Romans 13:1-7, Paul addresses this question head-on, providing timeless principles that are as relevant today as they were in the days of the Roman Empire.

Join Stephen as he unpacks five key principles from this passage:

  1. Submission to government authority is commanded by God.
  2. Human government is ordained by God.
  3. Disobedience to government brings consequences from God.
  4. The justice of good government reveals the character of God.
  5. Christians are to financially support their government, including paying taxes.

Stephen explains how these principles apply to believers worldwide, regardless of their specific governmental context. Discover how to honor God through respectful obedience, even when it’s challenging. What does it mean to live as a Christian citizen in today’s world? Tune in to find out and be encouraged to live out your faith in every aspect of life, including paying taxes.
