Romans 13

  1. Why did God “institute” government?
  2. Go back to Romans 12:19. There, Paul instructs the church to “never avenge ourselves, but to leave it to the wrath of God.” Contrast that with Romans 13:4b. What does this tell us about how God brings vengeance on the wrongdoer in the present time?
  3. Why does Paul say we “should be afraid” if we don’t follow the law established by government?
  4. What should motivate our obedience to the law? (hint: vs. 8-10)
  5. Is there ever a time where Christians should resist governing authorities?
