A Gospel Response to Government

Romans 13:1-7

Romans 13:1–7 has been a highly debated passage for individual Christians and within the local church for centuries. This controversial paragraph either directly addresses or indirectly raises many crucial issues relating to Christians and government:
(1) the divine purpose for government;
(2) God's sovereignty over government;
(3) the validity of capital punishment;
(4) reasons for a just war;
(5) our responsibilities and duties to government.
The apostle Paul addresses these issues and more in this particular portion of Romans 13. Followers of Jesus Christ must engage these topics from a biblical perspective in order to apply a biblical worldview towards government.
