by Chad Mansbridge. Launching our 2021 Term 3 Preaching Series, Chad draws our attention to the apostle Paul and his dealings with ‘authority issues’. Notably, how Paul related to those under him, over him, alongside him and within him. Is there a difference between submission and obedience? Can a leader be authoritative but not authoritarian? What about issues of conscience? Key texts include: 1 Corinthians 4; Acts 23:1–5; Galatians 2:6–11; Acts 20–21; Romans 14.
