Most young Jesus followers are always being told that the Bible is the most important book and should be read daily. But why? What makes the Bible inspired? What gives it authority and why should it be obeyed?
Authority basically means the right to judge the actions of others or to enforce something. To say that the Bible has authority is to say it has the power to declare what is true and what is not true and it has the power to command us to be obedient to Christ and His laws.
