Rescuing Romans 13:1-7 – How do we answer authoritarian use of these words?

Friends,

Please join me on my blog post "Rescuing Romans 13:1-7" for a conversation about this topic.

Amid the wide global turmoil stirred by America’s current flexing of authoritarian nationalism, a deeper spiritual turmoil has been brought to light by the current administration’s use of the apostle Paul’s Letter to the Romans.... What is your response to Romans 13:1-7? How do we witness to our faith in this time and place in history? How do you answer those in power?

Blessings,
Mike Shell
