Authority #12, Does Any of This Really Matter?
This is the final lesson in the Authority series. Authority is the right of power and of rule. It is inherent in God, and God alone, when you talk about spiritual matters. There are only two possible sources of authority; it either comes from God or comes from man. God revealed to us what He wants us to know. Silence teaches us nothing. Authority comes to us by direct statements or commands. We get authority by necessary implications or inferences, by approved Apostolic examples. There are also generic and specific types of authority. Terry now asks a simple question: Does any of this really matter? Terry certainly hopes so because he has spent 12 Sundays on the subject!
