The Bible and Authority

The following talk is by John Stott who argues that the authority of the Church should be found in the Bible. He rightly points out that the culture in which we live in is, in may ways, opposed to authority. The important thing is freedom. But, Stott argues, what we should be against is not authority but authoritarianism. We need authority - proper authority - under which and by which to live. That comes,for the Christian at least, from the Bible. It is very much a word for today, and in particular, a word for the Church.
