I recently listened to Gordan Runyan’s Romans 13:1-7 is Not a Statist Text: You know, the go-to text whenever tyrants start demanding unconditional obedience from Christians, “just like Paul said we should give to Nero in his time!”
I admit, I was once one of those misguided men who said the same thing, once upon a time. Glad I repented of it, but it’s even better to hear out a good exposition on Romans 13.
In these times, we can’t get enough reminders that God supports, liberty, not tyranny.
And we can’t get enough sound preaching on Romans 13.
God stand with Moses, and against Pharaoh.
