Titus1:5 For this reason I left you in Crete, that you would set in order what remains and appoint elders in every city as I directed you,
Now, you know, I know, and churchianity definitely knows that were the Bible written according to the gospel today's apostianity preaches and practices, the bible would not read as it does above. How would the gospel according to apostianity read?
Titus1:5 For this reason I left you in Crete, that you would set in order what remains and appoint pastors in every city as I directed you,
but the bible does'nt say that does it? Why didn't Paul appoint "pastors" in every city? Elders are an afterthought in today's apostate christianity, the pastor calls the shots, runs the show, Why is that? I'll tell you why, because it's an apostate idolatrous system, and it's what todays so called christians want. Men want to honor and worship other men, not the Creator who is forever praised amen. Men want lies, not the truth. The love of the truth will set a man free, Jesus IS the truth. From the very beginning men have been rejecting God and embracing mankind. Consider:
1 Sam 8:1 And it came about when Samuel was old that he appointed his sons judges over Israel. 2 Now the name of his firstborn was Joel, and the name of his second, Abijah; they were judging in Beersheba. 3 His sons, however, did not walk in his ways, but turned aside after dishonest gain and took bribes and perverted justice. 4 Then all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah; 5 and they said to him, “Behold, you have grown old, and your sons do not walk in your ways. Now appoint a king for us to judge us like all the nations.” 6 But the thing was displeasing in the sight of Samuel when they said, “Give us a king to judge us.” And Samuel prayed to the LORD. 7 The LORD said to Samuel, “Listen to the voice of the people in regard to all that they say to you, for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me from being king over them. 8 “Like all the deeds which they have done since the day that I brought them up from Egypt even to this day—in that they have forsaken Me and served other gods—so they are doing to you also.
Note carefully how the Lord judged this sin, He said "they have forsaken Me and served other gods" that's idolatry. Just exactly like today's pastoral system. People want a CEO/king/pastor to rule over them, not an invisible God. People want their flesh to be satisfied, they want to hear with their ears, see with their eyes, touch with their flesh. They don't want our God enough to commune with Him in the depths of the spirit.
Appointing a plurality of elders without some kind of CEO/pastor is what the bible calls for consistently. There is no mention anywhere of today's apostate CEO style church leadership which is what the pastoral system is all about. Come out of the harlot brothers and sisters, time is short. Grace, Mercy and Peace to you from God our Father and our savior Jesus Christ.
