Who's the greater authority?

To the editor:

I'm writing in to comment on the prayer issue from the July 23 paper.

Don Williams put a warning out that if councilors give up the practice of opening meetings with prayer, churches would stop entering floats in parades and offering Easter sunrise services in public parks.

I feel a float is not needed but instead, it is a vanity play on the public.

But as far as the Easter sunrise service is concerned, many people are affected by the witnessing and lives could be saved for Christ. I would hope that this was not a personal warning but instead a professional observance.

Bertina Eastman said it plainly in her letter to the editor of July 24, although she didn't ask for Paul Harvey's "the rest of the story."

Acts 4:17, 18 is a good example of what is happening here today. The story starts in Acts 3:1. Peter and John were put in prison for healing a lame man and preaching about Jesus. The rulers let Peter and John go but warned them first not to speak of Jesus.

But Peter and John answered and said to them, "whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than God, you judge." Acts 4:19.

In other words, who is the greater authority here?
