What is the means by which we receive our colors?
Just as the colors of the military represented authority
in battle, so God has provided a system of authority by
which we are to take in the Word---- the gift of pastor-
teacher. Even royalty is subject to higher authority. In the
Royal Family of God, two systems of authority must be
recognized: an outer authority--the pastor-teacher; and the
inner authority -- Bible doctrine, the very Word of God Him-
self, who is the highest Authority of all! No one can learn
from a teacher unless he respects his authority. It is the pastor
-teacher's responsibility as the commanding officer to pick up
the standard and lead his congregation to the high ground of
the super-grace life.

as it hath pleased him.
