We all know it’s true: Christians use particular verses from the Bible out of context to defend their own positions and actions.
So, while it was disturbing to watch US Attorney General Jeff Sessions a few weeks ago cite Paul’s letter to the Romans to defend his department’s policy of separating immigrant parents and children at the southern US border, it wasn’t surprising.
Sessions plucked a passage from Romans 13 which states, “Let every person be subordinate to the higher authorities, for there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been established by God”

Praise the Lord
