Living Under Imperfect Authority

Current Stock:

Author: Robert Smith


What do you do when the authority over you has some faults that seem inconsistent to the position or makes a decision with which you disagree or you think is just plain wrong?  Where is God in such situations?  It is important to face the reality of imperfect authority in the lives of all people.  The most important discussion will be presenting biblical principles to help believers learn how to live victoriously when the imperfections of authority make life difficult.

This is a session from the Biblical Counseling Training Conference hosted by Faith Church in Lafayette, Indiana. 

People are looking for the hope that there are answers for their hurts, their difficulties, and the challenges they face. Since 1985, the Biblical Counseling Training Conference has been equipping ministry professionals and lay leaders to skillfully, confidently, and lovingly minister God's Word to those looking for answers.
