Rebels have a difficult time existing within the parameters of Biblical authority. They fight against God instead of finding Comfort in God’s Leadership. Compliance is not within their grasp.
In fact, how we handle Scripture says a lot about our demeanor and relationship with authority. Namely, will we be able to fully submit to God?
I wrote in the article:
“When the rebellious cannot submit to Scripture, they seek to reshape Biblical authority, until they feel comfortable again. With the unpalatable passages rationalized away or discarded entirely, they feel an acceptable level of control return to their hearts.”
Let us submit and serve Him in all humility (James 4:10).
