Readers, texts, horizons and history: the unfinished task of
understanding our world and ourselves. Life is a journey and
certainly understanding what we read is an exciting one But what
happens when we read? To be sure, reading is more than just getting
information. We come to see the world anew and ourselves from a
different angle whenever we read a text. Texts also bring about
different possibilities of being-in-the-world. In that sense,
reading is an authentic learning experience. The Epistle to the
Romans has played an important role in shaping the Christian faith.
Particularly, Paul's instruction on civil matters has been
instrumental in the development of a Christian political thought.
Shifting political matters demand from the Church relevant answers.
The readers of Romans 13 are left with the unfinished task of
affirming and transforming the sphere of civil power in the light
of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. However, this task can only be
undertaken when we appropriate the lessons from the past keeping an
eye to the future.
