A Real Problem with Authority




I would say that authority is - in a way - a bigger crisis than the crisis of truth in postmodern culture.  Because authority constitutes also moral authority, the idea that God is a Judge to Whom we are rightly accountable.  The gospel is unimaginable without the concept of authority.

I could not agree with that statement more. The whole so-called "post-modern" society is merely a society of rebels. Life is less complex when the nation at large is full of citizens who submit to authority. Ditto the church.
