Shack perspective on authority
Chain of authority vs circle of relationship. We choose.
Others will likely use and abuse us. God will not. Human paradigm is authority and rule and governance.
Gods paradigm is relationship and love.
Omnipotence doesn't require authority. It is authority but it is more love.
Authority is just how we choose to try and relate and that perspective is deeply flawed.
