Karen Hardin - Are We to Submit to ALL Governing Authorities?
Are Christians to submit to ALL governing authorities? And according to the Constitution who is to have more power federal or state authorities?
Romans 13:1 states, "Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established.
The scripture seems pretty clear cut doesn’t it? But what about the times from history in which its not?
• When Peter and John defied the religious leaders of their day to continue to preach the Gospel.
• When the Hebrew mid-wives ignored Pharaoh and refused to kill the Hebrew babies.
• When Daniel continued to pray openly defying the king’s edict.
• When Paul, who wrote Romans 13 regarding governing authorities, then opposed them.
So, which is right? What are we supposed to do today regarding some of these same issues and the question of whether we are to submit to all authority?
Here is a look at this important issue from a biblical and constitutional review.
