The landscape of institutional church leadership is riddled with unbiblical, manipulative and controlling views and teachings about spiritual authority/covering and submission to such authority/covering – so much so that most church members suffer from immediate anxiety at the mere thought of leaving the institution. This DVD exposes these lies mercilessly – and teaches the Biblical, liberating truth about this matter.

              • Man's obedience to delegated (representative) authority is imperative

                                            • Three healthy habits of deputy authorities
                                              • They should always be aware of the fact that all authority issues forth from the Father
                                                • They should constantly allow the Holy Spirit to rid them of self
                                                  • Continual fellowship with the Lord
                                                  • We should not try to establish our own authority,
                                                    • and know how to behave when God's authority in us gets tested
