"Moderator" now means evaluator of the quality of a posting? Quotethe best you have to offer? "blame"? "personal attack"? People have been accused of many things in the pages of this thread, most based on rumor and inuendo. These have been allowed to stand w/o comment.

My apology: I misread. It was NOT to your previous two postings that I refferred in my posting, but the lines about the pastor's tithes, Mr Love, and the bowling alley, Mr Truth. Looking forward to that coffee. See you tomorrow.

Transparent, You need to check your facts, as well as the source. I personally know each of the elders in that church, and I can tell you that they are not all discipled by Pastor Tony.

Mod. What I endeavored to do was not explain dictatorship - your web site does a pretty good job of that - but point out the function of authority rightly practiced, or wielded, if you will. That would apply anywhere; a church, a business, the home (though I am not advocating choice of children in submitting to their parents!) or even a baseball or football team.

Moderator, There are many things that are part of churches today that are not in scripture - good (Sunday School, air conditioning) & bad (carrying on of dead traditions and rituals.)

RE: democratically elected leadership - Try as I may, I can't find this concept in scripture. Can you please tell me where it is modeled or commanded, or even suggested?
