Gathering in Christ

Job 32:8
But there is a spirit in man, and the breath of the Almighty gives him understanding.

… authority to be worthy arises out of the nature of a superior moral integrity… Job wants to know what kind of God it was who said it; is He a being whose character does not contradict the moral basis of life? Authority must be of a moral, not a superstitious character. To be without any authority is to be lawless, but to have only an internal authority is as bad as having a blind external authority. The two must meet together somehow.
