What is religious authority?

“Authority” is something we know all about in our physical world. A “green light” is supposed to give us the authority to “go” in our automobiles.  A police officer is given the “authority” to stop and even arrest people. Teachers are “authorized” to teach by various licensing bodies.  Financial transactions are “authorized” by financial institutions.

The idea of “authority” is also found in the Bible.  In lesson twenty-four from www.lordletmegrow.com Bible students study about religious authority.

In the Old Testament as well as the New Testament God warns people to only do what He has authorized them to do.  Stated another way, God says it is wrong to add to or take away from His word.
