Here is a powerful teaching by Watchman Nee on one of the most misunderstood and maligned spiritual issues of the Christian life: spiritual authority. Too few comprehend the nature and principle of God’s authority, let alone the very real consequences of those who violate or revile it.
 

“The acts of God issue from His throne, and His throne is established on His authority. All things are created through God’s authority and all physical laws of the universe are maintained by His authority. Hence the Bible expresses it as ‘upholding all things by the word of His power,’ which means upholding all things by the word of the power of His authority. For God’s authority represents God Himself whereas His power stands only for His act. Sin against power is more easily forgiven than sin against authority, because the latter is a sin against God Himself.”
