A. But the most important area of all, the salvation of our souls, also has a standard of authority, and that standard is the inspired Word of God, the Holy Bible.
1. If it is from Heaven, it is from God the Father: JAMES 1:17,18.
2. If it is from the Father, it is through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ: HEBREWS 1:1,2.
(A) CHRIST - ALL AUTHORITY:
(B) CHRIST'S AUTHORITY IN HIS WORD:
We shall NOT be judged by:
Ø Feelings, opinions, human judgments
Ø Preachers, teachers, pastors
Ø Synods, councils, assemblies, associations
Ø Parents, families, friends, loved ones
Ø Human creeds, catechisms, manuals, disciplines
Ø Is there authority from Christ to follow any Authority other than His inspired Word?
