So, tomorrow (hopefully) should be our first post on gender relations… …if my girlfriend and I can get on the same page long enough to hash out a blog post anyway :P. We’re making some progress at least… …well, when she isn’t laughing hysterically at random bible verses that aren’t even remotely funny! Admittedly, she’s had a very long day, but as I write this she is more than a little bit loopy. She just laughed her way through John 5 (actually had to stop reading a few times), and it’s just not a chapter that I find particularly funny. What can I say, I’ve got myself a special lady. It’s actually kind of fun to watch her try to read and laugh her head off at the same time, and then she tried to convince me that we’d already prayed together… …we hadn’t. Not even remotely. Yeah, she’s exhausted. So, you know the drill here: I’m going to give you a question, and you’re going to write me a one thousand word story that answers that question and defends your answer.
So, here’s your question today: What does it mean to have authority? Is authority absolute? Does it mean that you can demand whatever you want? Is all authority limited? Is some authority limited? If so, what are the limits of that authority?
