(1 Peter - Part 23): The Christians Relation to Government by A.W. Tozer
Scripture(s): 1 Peter 2:13-16 True to its title, this 23rd message of A. W. Tozer's 34-part study on Peter's first epistle explores The Christian's Relation to Government. The words of 1 Peter 2:13-16 testify that human government is of divine order. However, Dr. Tozer debunks a myth that the Bible endorses the primitive concept of divine right rule. He explains, The father, as the paternal source of the family, and thus as head of the family, and naturally as protector, defender, and bread winner of the family, was the first ruler. Human government thus developed from the idea of the family. Furthermore, God's Truth transcends all politics and human government. The pastor concludes with the beautiful words of Hebrews 12:22-24. The message was recorded on March 7, 1954, in Chicago, Illinois.
