Christians and the Government

Should Christians honor a government that doesn't honor God? How to do we respond to those with political ideologies that oppose our values.

Christians and the Government

God created government as an institution of authority over society and His sovereignty extends to the selection of those who end up serving in those positions. (13:1)

God created government to empower and reward good as well as restrain and punish evil. (13:2-4)

The right response to government is submission and cooperation in all matters except that which violates God’s rule. (13:5-7, 1 Peter 2:13-17)

Challenge:

How you honor and respect people with different political/governmental views as you will either help or hurt your ability to point people to Jesus. Do the people in your family, work, community, etc. that disagree with your political positions feel respected and honored by you?
