Is The Bible The Only Authority That Christians Need To Obey?

Episode 523 Show Notes 

From the Show

The Bible itself says there are other authorities that we should submit to and obey. Now, that doesn’t mean that those other authorities are equal with Scripture, it just means that God recognizes these other authorities in our lives to help guide us and help us be good citizens in the world. And that means we have to recognize their authority. They are not on par with Scripture, but they are legitimate authorities.

—Adriel Sanchez

Questions in this Episode

1. What did Jesus mean when he told Nicodemus that he had to be born again. Nicodemus even seemed confused, and I don’t understand Jesus’ answer about the wind and Spirit. Is this just a figurative of speech to describe some profound experience in your life?

2. Are there different levels of sin? Or is all sin equal in God’s eyes?

3. Is the Bible the only authority that Christians need to obey? 

4. I am struggling with knowing how to share the gospel with my unsaved family and friends because I am also seeing that my heart is hard toward situations I have been through with some of them. I truly hate this, and I don’t want to have this hardness in my heart. How can I share the gospel with them when I have such a hard heart?
