Watchman Nee(Spiritual Authority) states:
Sin against power is more easily forgiven than sin against authority, because the latter is a sin against God Himself. God alone is authority in all things; all the authorities of the earth are instituted by God. Authority is a tremendous thing in the universe—nothing overshadows it. It is therefore imperative for us who desire to serve God to know the authority of God (SA, p.10).
"We should not be occupied with right or wrong, good or evil; rather should we know who is the authority above us"
"If this matter of authority remains unsolved, nothing can be solved" (SA, p.23).
