Topic Groups: AUTHORITY, FELLOWSHIP
Sermon synopsis: 1 Thess 1:7 'For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, 10 and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. '
We are living in the days when there is lawlessness and a disregard for all authority.
Which authority do you submit to?
How should we behave when an authority over us is unjust?
What is the Biblical view on Church discipline?
What did Jesus mean by “the keys of the kingdom”?
Why do we need to have a spiritual family and to be accountable to God-instituted authority?
