Ever since, we have been eating from the same Tree. We have been making our own rules, especially about sexual morality. In the words of Dr. Peter Jones, “We really are now in the presence of a massive rejection of authority in general. There is no authority…Seventy-some percent of Americans no longer believe that there is any absolute truth. Even amongst evangelicals, forty percent no longer believe that there is any kind of ultimate truth. We really are in the presence of a massive change in the way people view authority.”
The questions are endless. How we answer them are ultimately a matter of authority. Who sets the rules…self, the pressures of our culture, or the living God revealed in the pages of scripture? Everything depends upon how we settle the issue of authority.
