15 - Rights and Responsibilities

Series: The Righteousness of God



November 28, 2022 | The Rev. Canon Dr. Jonathan Bailes

    In modern America, we are well acquainted with the language of rights. Claims and competitions over individual rights dominate our public conversations over right and wrong. In Romans 14, however, Paul challenges the way Christians ought to think about rights, instructing us to consider instead our responsibilities toward one another.
