Brent Hatchett, the young adult pastor at Cornerstone Church in Chandler, AZ, came to share how to counter another play in the Devil's Playbook. The main idea was that if you cannot respect the God-instituted human authority in your life, you will have a hard time with God's authority. I can see this is true because people will often bring the same attitude and fears they have with others into their relationship with God. This standard transfer is seeing God how our parents treated us because of God's paternal image. God's authority is meant to protect us. When we begin to see it as limiting, Satan takes advantage of that discontent. This frustrates us, especially when the ungodly person seems to get ahead and we don't.
He starts with an exposition of Romans 13:1-6 then goes into the example of Saul.
