“New digital technologies function as a great leveler, reducing the authority of the expert and elevating the authority of the amateur”

“Truth is very closely related to authority, since those with the most authority in a given area are the ones most likely to know what is true. Christians must understand this relationship and be willing to do the hard work of learning what is true from the best sources.”

Tim Challies, from The Next Story (172, 175)
