Since the beginning of the Christian church, believers have struggled to understand the proper relationship between the church and the state. Some have submitted to the state in all things. Others have refused to recognize any governmental authority. In this series, Dr. R.C. Sproul explores the biblical teaching regarding the church’s relationship to the state. He explains how we are to relate to the God-ordained authority of the government. He addresses modern church-state relations, and he gives advice for those under godly and ungodly rulers.
