Law-Abiding Faith

The increasing number of Christians who claim to follow Christ but refuse to obey the laws of their land represents a concerning trend. The Bible commands Christians to obey enacted laws, as stated in Romans 13:1-2. Going against God's instituted order and disobeying legitimate authority not only invite punishment but also undermine the values they uphold. Compliance with the law shows respect for authority, maintains societal order, and demonstrates love for neighbors. By obeying laws and discerningly evaluating them in light of God's commands, Christians can faithfully follow Christ's teachings and positively contribute to nation-building.
