Responding to Biblical Authority

There is something I think I need to say, but it may seem like self-praise. When I write posts and articles, I pray for several things, including that they glorify God, edify the saints, and encourage them to stand on the authority of God's Word. The authority of the Bible is overlooked or waved off far too often.

The Bible is foundational for not only Christian doctrine, but also our life and conduct. We must respond properly to biblical authority.

The Bible is the foundation for the Christian's life and thinking in every area. It is unchanging. Cultural whims, governments, trends, opinions, and more come and go. Sometimes these change quite rapidly. Atheists have no consistent standard for logic and morality, but God's Word is our ultimate source for those things. If you study on it a mite, you'll see that Genesis is the source of all major Christian doctrines, and that is what secularists are attacking the most — beginning with creation. It is imperative that we respond properly to biblical authority.

The linked article is written in an interview format where the author responds to several written questions on the subject. I hope you'll take the time to read it (my estimate is about six minutes) or download the audio. For your edification, kindly click on "The Battle for Biblical Authority".
