Romans 13:1–7 has a storied legacy of use in political rhetoric. The very fact that such broad interpretations have been possible over the centuries suggests that we should apply this passage to any contemporary situation with a great deal of care and only in consistency with Jesus’s ethic of loving one’s neighbor as oneself (Matthew 22:39).
In this second message on The Church, Culture, and Politics, pastor Bogdan reminds us that Jesus is too liberal for conservatives and He is too conservative for liberals. Jesus is a category breaker. God always breaks our categories. That is why He is God. Let's get ready to find hope in Jesus, by listening to this message.
