Jeff Sessions (US Attorney General) recently cited Romans 13 as justification for supporting the Zero Tolerance immigration policy. Unfortunately, he isn't the first person to misuse Paul's words on the purpose of government. So, what does Paul actually mean when he says that we should submit to the powers that be? In God & Government: A Responsible Reading of Romans 13, Pastor David shares some historical background and context that enables us to correctly apply Paul's instructions to the church.
