Another view on authority and elders…

Posted by on Mar 8, 2007 in blog links, elders, office | 4 comments

In response to my post “Leadership, Obedience, and Authority“, Dave Black linked to an interesting article on the same topic. The article is called “Do Elders Rule?” and it is written by Dusty Owens. The article is long, and at times it seems the author may not present both sides fairly. But, there is some good research in the article. Most importantly, Owens studies some of the same terms and passages that I have been studying in order to understand elders and authority.

    Alan: The link to the article didn’t seem to work for me.

    The link is working for me. Try copying/pasting the url into your browser:

    Neither the link nor the cut & pasted url work for me either.

    Any other suggestions?

    David and Rick,

    I’m not sure what’s going on here. The link still works for me, but the page content is now messed up. I guess they are having problems with their site.
