TISCIONE: The Christian and the government

(Continued)

• Civil authorities have a granted authority under the sovereign God.

• Believers must obey God rather than man when man’s law conflicts God’s law.

• Christians are to “pay to all what is owed them …” (Romans 13:7)

• Christians are to live in peace with others to the extent that we are able. (Romans 12:18)

We in the church must be aware that we have been set apart by God for God. Our lives are to be lived in accordance with the word of God. Believers live under God’s word. When we are persecuted let us not wander from the truth. May we all have the strength to bear up under persecution for the glory of God, keeping before us the truth that He has promised never to leave us or forsake us. (Hebrews 13:5)

Lou Tiscione is pastor of Weatherford Presbyterian Church (PCA).
