Church Structure by Paul or Jesus?
Have you ever heard a believer on Utube disputing with another believer regarding doctrine and when it comes to public shaming and exposing their wrongs they will likely pull out scriptures quoting Paul? How often do you hear people quoting Jesus while in disputes? Paul was a man capable of error and sin; while Jesus, the son of God, was blameless, sinless and the only one qualified to teach.
In my search for better understanding of the differences between Paul’s epistles and Jesus Christ’s teachings, I stumbled upon an article that suggests Jesus Christ organized his own church structure contrary to Paul’s; having no church leader aside from himself to ensure that there’re no paid leaders able to be tempted with mammon as a conflict of interest. I’ve provided a link below to an interesting article regarding the church structure Jesus organized and why he should always be the only leader of the church. I’m interested in hearing your thoughts about the quotes from Jesus on non-salary paid leadership in the church and how Paul’s words contradict. I’d love to discuss further “wages for pastors, hierarchy in the church, and salvation without repentance from sin,”(JesusWordsOnly.com) and how that can be a conflict of interest, at the direction of Paul that silences the words and teachings of Jesus.
Father is Quoted:
Mark 9:7 And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.
Jesus is Quoted: Matthew 10:8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,
10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.
