Today's post is Part 2 of a 4-part blog series on questions raised from the recent sermons on Romans 13:1-7 on the topic of "The Government is God's Servant."
You can read Part 1, "The Humanitarian Theory of Punishment" here.
On the question of whether Christians should pay taxes in light of the reality that some of our tax dollars may support abortion, see this article by Albert Mohler:
But to refuse to pay taxes is to deny the legitimacy of the government itself, and to declare it beyond political remedy. Even to Christians suffering under the repressive, murderous, and dictatorial yoke of Rome, Jesus instructed the payment of taxes. Caesar, Christ knew, will one day face the judgment of Almighty God. Rome would one day be brought under his own feet and made subject to him.
The purpose of our church blog is to serve the overall mission of our church: to delight in the beauty of God's greatness,
