To Today’s Church Leaders:

The requirements Elders must hold are clearly explained in the N.T.. They are indeed a high standard set by the Lord. I have during my 10+ years of serving as a Church Elder in three Churches, occasionally some fellow Elders thought I came close to violating that standard by losing my temper office while attempting to stop incorrect (unchristian) thinking or actions of fellow leaders. This I have regretted. God reminds me though in Titus chapter one, that it is an Elders responsibility to rebuke those proposing to, or taking actions that are harmful and that would cause disunity to the Body of Christ, for that I have not, and will not repent. I pray daily for all Leaders in all Churches. Their work should be obvious to all as they look at the “body” and “know we are Christians” by the love and unity they see!
