Third Sunday After Easter – Church Back Home- May 11, 2014

Here we find another often-misused Epistle reading. What does “Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake” actually mean? Should St Polycarp have tossed the offered incense on Caesar’s fire so that he could go home and avoid the arena? In the 1950’s was Rosa Parks supposed to sit in the back of the bus “for the Lord’s sake?” Certainly not!

But it does point out a basic principle which can be a powerful tool, and even a weapon if needed.
