January 19, 2016 – Faith & Religion: Authority in Religious Traditions
Season 9, Episode 3
What gives you the authority…? On this installment of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss faith and authority. Authority: what is it, where does it come from, and who has it? Throughout the ages questions of religious authority have been a part of the ongoing conversation and struggle regarding religion. When we talk about authority in religious communities, what do we mean? Are religious leaders and their interpretation of sacred texts always authoritative? If so – what does that mean? And if not – what does that mean? We’ll get into the conversation about authority from our three faith traditions. The issue of authority in religion. That conversation is on this episode of Friends Talking Faith.
