A Revolutionary Message for Church and State
July 12, 2015 Speaker: Clint Humfrey Series: Romans: The Letter By Which the Church Stands or Falls
Topic: Sermon Scripture: Romans 13:1–13:7
The Romans Emperors Caligula, Claudius and Nero were a wicked group. Yet the Empire continued to bring order to most of the known world. How would Paul, the Roman citizen, counsel the Christians who lived at the Emperor's doorstep? Does he call for a tax revolt? Armed resistance? His exhortation in Romans 13.1-7 is surprisingly revolutionary.
