Anabaptist Essentials #3 – Jesus is Lord

“Anabaptists believe that at all times and in all places, followers of Jesus are to give their supreme allegiance to God as known in Jesus Christ” (Becker, 54). Pastor Stan Shantz encouraged JSMC to not hold back; instead call Jesus Lord and Savior of all. He reminded us that when we call Jesus our Lord, it means obeying God rather than human authority (Acts 5.29). That may mean that we disobey human-made civil laws that go against God (regardless the political party who enacted the law), no matter what the cost will be to us. Philippians 2.1-11
