So, in line with my last post about organic fellowship….
Someone please, biblically, experientially, using interpretive dance… I don’t care. Just defend the position that the role of one man up front, talking endlessly on a variety of subjects while the Body corporate sits quietly in their pew drinking it all in.
Explain and defend the “spiritual authority” of elders and pastors, as we have named them and why the Body is told to submit to them at a higher level than we are to submit to one another.
Example: The pastor rebukes the women in the congregation for dressing too sexy during the summer months and tells the men they should pray more and he’s taking risks and loving us enough to hold us accountable while the mom/dad/friend/sister/brother who says the same thing is judging you and not loving you…. I don’t make this stuff up. True story. Less than 3 months ago.
I know pretty much where I stand on this…. Do you? Disagree? Tell me why.
I guess I’m pickin’ for a fight.
