Power and the men who love it

Posted by appolus on November 16, 2019

Men who have power in Christendom, mostly pastors, will never recognize their need to radically change their ways. They love the power and anything that would change that will be violently opposed. For them it runs counter to multiple centuries of tradition. The truth is, for the most part, they love being important. It would be akin to the Hollywood stars who love the adulation of the crowds. Or the Pharisee who loves the best place at the table. The biblical form of leadership strikes at the heart of their vanity, it delivers a death blow to their pride. The departure from an elite group of leaders or one man power system is the radical nature of what the NT teaches.It is an absolute revolution against every part of the flesh.

The institution and the keepers of it will do everything to maintain their power. The Pharisees and the Sadducees and the scribes and the Herodians and the Romans all came together in the end to kill Jesus to maintain their order, and keep their positions, they were keepers of the status quo. It was decided by a disparate group of religious people and politicians that “it is better for you that one man die for the people than that the whole nation perish.” A similar disparate group of religious people, and politicians will come to a similar conclusion about those who call for a sweeping away of the old in favor of the exclusive teachings of the New Testament. That group will morph into the great whore church, attended by the ranks of the fallen away. They will be the deadliest enemies of the remnant saints.
