Indeed. But how does this address the issue when those who have the rule are lacking in faith, being merely schoolmen. For as Paul said, Jas 2:5 "Listen, my dear brothers and sisters: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him?"You are welcome
or we could just look at scripture....
Heb 13:17 Obey them that have the RULE OVER YOU, and SUBMIT yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
Lk 10:16 Whoever listens to you listens to ME. Whoever rejects you rejects me. And whoever rejects me rejects the one who sent me.
Why should those who sole claim to leadership is academic qualifications be called "teachers?" Why is a priest who had gone through a formal education more qualified to be a teacher that one who hasn't, but has more faith? Many priests have no faith at all. This apply to every denomination.
In the days of the NT, it could be assumed that the leaders had passed various tests of faith etc. Nowadays those unfit to hold any spiritual office can be priests and teachers. Why does the church need the equivalent of a Rabbi?
