Summary

Authority is a tremendous thing in the universe, nothing overshadows it. God's throne is established on His authority. God's authority represents God Himself. God alone is authority in all things; all the authorities of the earth are instituted by God. It is therefore important for us who desire to serve God to know the authority of God.

God's authority is absolute, hence we must give Him absolute submission (our heart's attitude) and absolute obedience (our outward actions). But to His delegated authorities we can render absolute submission, but only relative obedience. For their authorities are circumscribed by the measure of the life of Christ in them. Only when they themselves submit to God's authority in them are they able to represent God. Hence there is much we have to learn about how to represent God.

delegated authority

so no church or government meets the qualifications of a legitimately delegated authority, and whether you are made martyr by refusing to kneel to the illegitimate authority of anyone from nero to communist china: its all the same as far as the lord is concerned.

Weak Exegesis

Many of the good points toward the end of the book are overshadowed by dangerous points early in the book. Our Authority is Christ, and His infallible Word. We can't put our trust in fallible men, no matter their rank or title. Furthermore, Nee doesn't address the limits of jurisdiction for authorities. A minister of the Gospel doesn't have inherent civil authority, nor does a civil authority have inherent authority in the Church.

Makes you really rethink wanting authority.

Extremely insightful. I enjoyed and now understand how to proceed to authority with precautions. Extreme precaution.
