What Kind of Authority Figure is God?
God is the absolute boss, but what kind of boss is he?
It is pretty common today to be suspicious of and to distrust authority. There's been so many bad authority figures and so much misuse of authority, that it's easy to react negatively to authority in general.
From politics to teachers to bosses and sadly even to parents, there have been plenty of self-serving, power hungry, and mean-spirited authority figures. And thus, we could react to God's authority from that place of suspicion and distrust.
But how authority gets used really depends on the the person wielding it. So what kind of person is God and what does that mean for how he uses his authority?
This episode explores Exodus 34:6-7 and Philippians 2:5-8 to answer this question.
