He looked out his window from his office in a very nice, stately building in Shanghai and saw workers toiling to build another structure and the sun beating down on them, and he began to empathize with those people. If we do esteem Him beyond everything else in life, then we will seek Him and seek His truth – not as a matter of occasional interest, but as a matter of sincere and consistent devotion.

But it is actually convenient for the laymen to reckon the leadership as super-Christians and themselves as nothing but stupid sheep incapable of doing nothing but the most menial tasks. Any disciple who shall throw off obedience to the Church is to be reckoned as one of the heathen: he has no part in the Kingdom of God ( Matthew 18:17 ). Submission theology protects the privileges of the powerful; as a result, abuse survivors in submission cultures are not able to fight effectively for support or accountability.

Consciously shift the discussion from one mode to the other as needed Don't push for a decision if you think an issue hasn't been discussed enough (especially where conflict/controversy are involved), or when you perceive people haven't been very transparent in their comments. But the slums are growing at such a rate that the Christian ministries have not begun to keep pace. This category is best demonstrated through the work in which many churches participate to further the gospel.

Does the Bible prescribe a type of church government? "It appears likely that there was no normative pattern of church government in the apostolic age, and that the organizational structure of the church is no essential element in the theology of the church." - George Eldon Ladd [1] "It is not as much as hinted in the New Testament that the church would ever need — or indeed should ever want or tolerate — any other local leadership than that of the eldership group." -J.
