Paper Tigers:: Authority from Men not from God

Paper Tigers:: Scribes and Pharisees always challenged Jesus on His doctrine, but Jesus wasn’t intimidated because He taught with authority from God, not like the scribes who drew all of their authority from agreements with other men.
Mark 1:22

And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.
Jesus met every challenge and completely destroyed all opposition. Both false doctrine and false action must bow to the name of Jesus.
Don’t Boast and brag like you know what you’re dealing with when you don’t. Jesus is LORD!
KJV

And the king of Israel answered and said, “Tell him: ‘Let not him that girdeth on his armor boast himself as he that putteth it off.’” 1 kings 20:11
CEV

Ahab then answered, “Benhadad, don’t brag before the fighting even begins. Wait and see if you live through it.” 1 kings 20:11

Not Like the Scribes

The Church has come full circle. They told Jesus He preached with authority, not like the scribes. Nowadays, people want you to preach like the scribes – apologize, don’t have too much authority.
