Relying on the Authorities of This World

GOD'S WORD: A battleground between God and the enemies of God for centuries.

“For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.
–Psalm 119:89

God’s Word (the Bible) is the source of all truth.

It is also an unimpeachable authority.

Which is a primary reason the “father of lies” [Satan] works tirelessly to undermine it.

“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. “
–John 8:44

Because the Bible is the source of all truth, the world sets up many alternative authorities:

  1. Science
  2. Experts
  3. History
  4. Tradition
  5. Medicine
  6. College Professors
  7. Studies
  8. The Media
  9. Government Agencies
  10. The Latest Research
  11. Culture and Entertainment
  12. False Religions
  13. Secret, Hidden Knowledge
  14. Learned Men
  15. Ancient Texts
  16. Etc.

The primary job of these alternate authorities is to challenge God’s Word in some fashion.

MORE: Problem With Authority

One way the person who trusts such worldly authorities can know they are being told a lie: the stories of the world’s “experts” constantly change.

THE TRUTH NEVER CHANGES

Just something the reader should keep in mind the next time he sees the Corporate Media–or any of the world’s other “authorities“–trumpeting its latest discovery of the “truth.”

HAS the reader put his trust in one of the world’s many authorities?

HAS the reader forsaken the only Truth in exchange for deception?

DOES the reader rely on the authorities of this world?

THOUGH time grows short, there is still time left to change direction (repent) and call upon the name of the LORD.

Is your calling and election sure?

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
