Galatians 5:16-23 teaches that at any moment we are either walking by the Holy Spirit or according to the sin nature. Walking by the Spirit, enjoying fellowship with God, walking in the light are virtually synonymous. During these times, the Holy Spirit is working in us to illuminate our minds to the truth of Scripture and to challenge us to apply what we learn. But when we sin, we begin to live based on the sin nature. Our works do not count for eternity. The only way to recover is to confess (admit, acknowledge) our sin to God the Father and we are instantly forgiven, cleansed, and recover our spiritual walk (1 John 1:9). Please make sure you are walking by the Spirit before you begin your Bible study, so it will be spiritually profitable.

Acts 4:19-20 by Robert Dean
Is there any correlation between witchcraft and rebellion against authority? Are Christians a law unto themselves? The underlying issue in all of human history is really an issue of authority. Under what circumstances then, does a Christian have the responsibility to disobey authority?

In the third lesson of this special side study on authority, we learn that there are limits to authority and look at passages that begin to explore these limitations. This is an extremely important area of study during our current times and begins to clarify exactly what a Christian's position should be in every area of authority in their life.
