Respect for

Respect for

Bible Authority

Respect for

God’s authority

“Simon Says”


Respect for

The Principle of Authority

  • "And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.“ Matt. 16:19

    • Bound on earth ~ Bound in heaven

    • Keys ~ authority to open and close

    • Bind = prohibit, forbid

    • Loose = permit, allow


Respect for

The Principle of Authority

  • “For we walk by faith, not by sight” 2 Cor. 5:7

    • Faith ~ Follow all His directions

    • Sight ~ After things of this world

  • “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17

    • Faith ~ hearing by the word

    • Heb. 11:6 “without faith it is impossible to please”

    • Word ~ “The seed is the word of God.” Lk.8:11


Respect for

Example of Generic and Specific Authority

“A Jewish Man” = any tribe of Israel

“A man of Levi” = excludes all other 11 tribes

Numbers 1:50 “appoint the Levites”

“A priest” = could be any priest

“High priest” = all other priests excluded

Heb. 7:27 “as those high priests,”

A specific command of God

Excludes all other possibilities


Respect for

Three Laws about Bible Authority

1. Law of Harmony

Hold Inspired Word of God

1 Thes. 2:13 “as it is in truth, the word of God”

Gal. 1:11-12 “the revelation of Jesus Christ.”

1 Cor. 2:13 “not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches,”

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

Some Twist this verse to teach “Saved by Faith Only”

Law of Neglect

James 2:24 “not by faith only”

Gal. 3:26-27 “baptized into Christ”

The Faith which saves is the faith which obeys.

The restoration plea

The Restoration Plea

Where the Bible speaks, we speak,

Where the Bible is silent, we are silent.

Call Bible things by Bible names,

Do Bible things in Bible ways.

In matters of faith, unity.

In matters of opinion, liberty.

In all matters, charity.

2. Law of Completeness

We must not go beyond God’s Word
