GREAT CONTROVERSY/GREAT CONCERN: "Christian Growth & Church Hierarchy"

I Corinthians 12:28 - "And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers.."

Ephesians 4:4-5 - "And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry..."

James 3:1 - "My brethren, let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment."

Hebrews 13:7 & 17 - "Remember those who rule over you, who have spoken the word of God to you, whose faith follow, considering the outcome of their conduct." … "Obey those who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give account..."

I Peter 5:1-4 - "The elders who are among you I exhort, I who am a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that will be revealed: Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, not by constraint but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly; nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock."

Titus 1:5, 7-10 - "For this reason I left you in Crete, that you should set in order the things that are lacking, and appoint elders in every city as I commanded you.' .. "For a bishop must be blameless, as a steward of God, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but hospitable, a lover of what is good, sober-minded, just, holy, self-controlled, holding fast the faithful word as he has been taught, that he may be able, by sound doctrine, both to exhort and convict those who contradict."
