While recently trying to formulate a question to ask God, I was thinking something along the lines of asking if what is done in his name is what he wants done, or if the Bible was recorded correctly or interpreted correctly.
But these questions all rest on the assumption of divine authority. If God exists, what gives him the right to issue commandments, in essence, to command me? What is the source of his authority to issue laws?
Is it because he created the universe and all existence? If he did, does that entitle him to tell everyone everywhere what to do for all time? Is this some form of ownership? If he created me, does God have property rights over me? Am I his property?
And where does God get the authority to punish me or anyone else for breaking his rules? Where did I agree to his punishment system?
These are all just flowing thoughts, but they all rest on that main question: Where does God's authority come from?
