Bible Study – Ecclesiastes part 8

In chapter 8 Solomon and Luther go into a discussion how it is proper to obey the authorities that are set over us, and for the sake of wisdom, this doesn’t disagree with the Old Testament teaching that it is better to obey God over men recognizing that you can have a bad ruler or king in place. It sets in place this instruction which Luther held up very clearly in front of his students when giving lectures that obedience to the powers set over us is not to be taken lightly.
