Great Sermon! Loved the message,the in depth study into the topic of elders was filling.I pray that churches would begin to get back to scripture instead of following the culture.

Great Sermon! Ernest does not know what the "old paths" are. Read Acts Chapter 20, Ernest, and you will see what the pattern of the plurality of elders in a New Testament church is all about.
Questionable This is the new bandwagon in the SBC, and the fish are all swimming with the tide. Where are the defenders of the old paths? The Scripture texts offered can only satisfy those who want to consider the texts superficially. Even if some of the NT churches did have a plurality there is nothing offered to prove that this should be normative for every church!
MUCH NEEDED MESSAGE! As far as I'm concerned, this message ends the debate. Plurality of Elders, of course! Can any Spirit filled Christian listen to this message and disagree? I think not. The question is: Are we humble enough to turn to that which is CLEARLY God's way? We must pray for tender hearts in leadership.

Great Sermon! The unpopular truth of the word that so many churches neglect. Thanks for your good research which is accurate and convincing.

Great Sermon! For anyone who can read the Bible, this sermon ought to conclusively prove the proper form of Christian church government. This a clarion call to the apostate church to look to the Scriptures and not to their worldly patterns.
