Everyone has a spiritual authority they appeal to for decision-making and truth.
But, it's not found in the Roman Catholic Church or their Vatican and Ecumenical councils.
Pope Francis is NOT a true spiritual authority, neither was Pope Benedict nor Pope John Paul II.
True authority is not found in the Lutheran's Augsburg Confession, the Presbyterian's Westminster Confession, or the Anglican's 39 Articles.
The Great Controversy by Ellen White is powerless.
The Watchtower's put out by the Jehovah's Witnesses are completely useless.
The Doctrines and Covenants by the Mormon's is a read of hopelessness.
However, there is a powerfully written, spiritual authority. It contains 66 books, with 1,189 chapters. It's the most authoritative book on earth: the King James Bible!
