Does Romans 13 Allow Tyranny?
My wife Chelsea and I discuss Romans chapter 13 and what we believe it really means. Have many Christians misunderstood verses 1-7? Did the Apostle Paul really teach that God’s moral law can sanction tyranny from pagan rulers?
We ask and answer these questions about Romans chapter 13:
- What are the “higher powers”?
- What is the “good” and “evil”?
- What about Paul’s own ministry of being an outlaw?
- What is the function of government being addressed? (vengeance and the second table of the law)
