Is the bible the constitution of Christianity?

I think that is a concept worthy to reflect upon. I think many large organized religions operate the same as large governments in regards to the constitution. If you believe the bible is analogous to Christianity as the constitution is to our government, then it may serve you to follow the same path of awakening. Ask questions, research. What in the bible gives authority to the church to do a, b, c etc.

And if you think it is bad to question authority, seems that wasn't a bad thing in biblical times.

The Bereans were considered noble for not just accepting what they were told, but questioning and researching. They didn't just take it for granted that even Paul was telling the truth.
