  5. Hmmm? Leadership?

    Just wondering how you reconcile
    the use of the word “leader”
    with what Jesus said in Mt 23:10.

    The word “leader”seems like
    a “high place.” Yes?

    Jesus always took and recommended
    the “low place.” Yes?

    Jesus humbled Himself,
    made himself of no reputation
    and took on the form of a servant.
    Php 2:7

    Jesus in Mat 23:10 told His disciples “NOT” to call
    themselves master/“leaders”
    for you have one master/”leader” the Christ.

    King James Version –
    Neither be ye called masters:
    for one is your Master, even Christ.

    The Interlinear Bible –
    Nor be called leaders,
    for one is your leader the Christ.

    Phillips Modern English –
    you must not let people
    call you leaders,
    you have only one leader, Christ.

    Today’s English Version –
    nor should you be called leader,
    your one and only leader
    is the Messiah.

    The Amplified-
    you must not be called
    masters (leaders)
    for you have one master (leader)
    the Christ.

    Jesus told His disciples “not”
    to be called “leaders”
    and none did.

    Ro 1:1 Paul,
    a servant of Jesus Christ…

    Php 1:1 Paul and Timotheus,
    the servants of Jesus Christ…

    Col 4:12 Epaphras, who is one of you,
    a servant of Christ…

    Tit 1:1 Paul, a servant of God…

    Jas 1:1 James, a servant of God…

    2Pe 1:1 Simon Peter, a servant…

    His disciples “all” called themselves “servants,”
    none called themselves “leaders.” None? None.
    None called themselves
    “servant-leader.” None.

    If someone
    calls them self a “leader”
    or thinks they are a “leader;”

    Are they a “disciple of Christ?”

    Wondering some more.

    Most on the list of people
    at this “leadership?” event
    are not only considered “ leaders?”
    but also have the “Title” “Pastor.”

    Where in the Bible does it say “pastor = leader?”

    Have you done your own study
    on pastors?
    I mean in the Bible?
    What does the Bible say
    about pastors?

    Makes an interesting study.

    Here’s some questions to ask
    as you check out pastors.

    In the Bible, How many people…
    have the title pastor?

    In the Bible, How many people are…
    referred to as pastor?

    In the Bible, How many people are…
    ordained as a pastor?

    In the Bible, How many congregations are…
    led by a pastor?

    Be blessed in your search for truth… Jesus

    And other sheep I have,
    which are not of this fold:
    them also I must bring,
    and they shall hear my voice;
    and there shall be one fold,
    and one shepherd.
    John 10:16

    One Fold – One Shepherd – One Voice.
    If Not Now, When?

    Be blessed and be a blessing.

  6. I am always amazed at someone who knows a lot of Scripture and yet does not understand what it is saying. A leader is anyone who has followers. I would have a hard time following you my friend. You seem to better meet the definition of a critic – someone who knows the best way to get there but doesn’t have a drivers license.
