As I started putting together a list, I realized that many of the issues fell into categories. For instance, the first four points in my theses all relate to leadership and the relationship we are to have with one another and towards those God calls to have the role of leadership in our midst.
So the way I see this working is that I will post items that fit into a category then maybe do a little write-up to clarify and state my reasons for including them on the list. So here is the next two on the list:
3. Covering and accountability is un-scriptural and abusive.
4. Relationship and mutual submission is the scriptural path to a mutual accountability. Authority is given not taken. I can give you the authority to speak in to my life and I can take it away.
I will do a follow up post introducing my views on these issues in the near future. For now, please read this post that actually points to another post. At the time of my writing this the links to Steve Hill’s blog seem to be broken so I have not actually read any of his blog, though from the quotes in A Former Leader’s Journey’s post have definitely tweaked my interest.
