An Irony

I still hope to give ample time and thought to the ideas of Church and State, as begun below. But in rereading those thoughts this morning, I am very struck with this irony: the American churches, by and large, have adopted a very American form of church government, and one not so driven by the example of Scripture. Consider: the President (Senior Pastor), Vice President (Associate Pastor), etc. The picture provided us in the Book of Acts is much more organic, operating in team-leadership by several elders and even several (teaching) pastors within each local church body.

I wanted to here make note of this, for later meditation.
