A Question of Authority
A Sermon on John 5:31-35
If I alone bear witness about myself, my testimony is not true. There is another who bears witness about me, and I know that the testimony that he bears about me is true. You sent to John, and he has borne witness to the truth. Not that the testimony that I receive is from man, but I say these things so that you may be saved. He was a burning and shining lamp, and you were willing to rejoice for a while in his light. (ESV)
Spiritual blindness and the life of illusion; the inevitability of judgement and the moral principle that runs through life; a question of authority; and the final judgement; the new nature a gift from God.
