Even churches that claim to be governed by a plurality of elders have redefined eldership so that its original purpose and noble standing have, in practice, been eclipsed by the ordained pastor and his staff. The lesson also reviews chapter 3 of Biblical Eldership,“Male Leadership.”This is not only an issue related to God’s plan for male-female relationships in the home and church, but is an issue of biblical integrity and authority that is of utmost importance to the Lord’sFile Size: KB.
