How Is Authority Established?

6/10/18 Sunday Bible Class

Teacher: Matthew Burleson
We are continuing our discussion of authority in the church, and focusing particularly on three ways that authority is established in Scripture: direct command, approved apostolic example, and necessary inference.  We also begin to dig into thoughts concerning expediency, and how we can know when something is expedient, and when it is simply an addition.

Authority in the Church

6/3/18 Sunday Bible Class

Teacher: Matt Burleson
Continuing a series that will eventually be broken up and spread out over several months, we move from thinking about the question “What is the church?” to considering how authority is established and recognized by the church. What constitutes authority?  What gives authority, and what does not give authority?  What should be our response to Biblical authority? These are some of the questions that will be dealt with in some way in this lesson.
