Authority isn't a bad word

Our culture today mocks God ordained authority.

However, the Bible is loaded with good, practical advice regarding authority and how beneficial it is to our society. Below are 5 Bible verses to meditate upon...

ONE: Authority is a general Bible principle:

Proverbs 29:2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

TWO: Jesus taught with authority:

Matthew 7:29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

THREE: Soldiers understand authority:

Matthew 8:9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.

FOUR: The Bible teaches authority in the context of the church gathering together.

1 Timothy 2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

FIVE: The home has a biblical authority structure:
