Latest Sermon

Last week I mentioned there are two key texts in the NT that teach us how to relate to those in authority over us, I Peter 2:11-17 and Romans 13:1-7. Last week I read I Peter 2, this week I read Romans 13 so you have in mind the context for my reflections. I am not naïve. I know preaching these texts especially in times like these can flush more birds than can be shot in one or two sermons. I know that some of you are saying, “But what about ….?” And “Yeah, but what about this or that?” I also understand that our context is very different. This is not first century Roman empire but twentieth century America. We are still living in a constitutional republic. And now add to all this, on Friday President Trump whacked the beehive by declaring all houses of worship open. Can he do that? Does his authority override governors? Does his authority override the elders of churches? Or parents in the home?
