SUBMIT OR NOT: A QUESTION OF SUBMITTING TO GOVERNING AUTHORITIES

Posted by Yuen Yim Low on

submit or not

Paul’s letter to the Romans calls Christians to submit to the governing authorities of his day, while underlining the role of government for the good of its society.

What is the meaning and relevance of Romans 13 for us today in unpacking the role of the state as well as our role in society, in the context of managing the nation and its resources?

This seminar will provide a fresh outlook look at the bible and contemporary situation on the responsibilities of those who govern and those who are governed. Is this submission unconditional or do we have a part to play in promoting Kingdom values in governance?
