Pastor Dave taught on civil authority and our biblical responsibilities toward those in authority over us in government. In this lesson we’ll dig deeper and apply some of the principles to our own lives.
From the sermon: are there any circumstances under which Christians may disobey civil magistrates? What are they?
Read Romans 13:1 and then 2 Corinthians 11:32-33. In this passage, Paul (the same person who wrote Romans 13) describes his escape from the civil authorities. If Christians must always and under all circumstance obey civil authority- wasn’t Paul being a hypocrite? How can we explain his disobedience to the king? Can you think of any circumstances you are facing today that justify civil disobedience?
