Last week in Sunday School while discussing God’s Law, a discussion ensued about Romans 13 and immoral leaders. Everyone could agree that all government officials, yes even the “bad” ones are appointed by God, and we are subject to that authority as long as they do not violate God’s Law. However, someone suggested that these immoral leaders forfeit their authority over us by virtue of their immorality. I say absolutely not! God is Sovereign and what He appoints only he can undo.
The following is the SS lesson and the lesson with my notes, I will be teaching on the subject today. I draw heavily from A.W. Pink’s book on the subject, and there is a complete list of resources at the end.
