Why is Apostolic Authority so Important?


This talk discusses the role of apostolic authority in laying down the foundations of the church, creating the documents of the New Testament Scriptures, and serving as a reference point for the rule of faith. This authority is especially important to understand when disagreeing with theological liberals and Roman Catholics. Why is this authority reliable? Why does the doctrine of apostolic succession contradict it?
