Amen! Elders must make sure they are feeding the flock. Not just relying on the minister and Bible classes.

You keep speaking of Gods church. I believe we are all Gods people & the church is the people. Of those people loose their eternal lives do to improper teachings, guidance, & leadership, those preachers, pastors &/or elders will be held blood guilty. So there is some bravery involved here along with knowledge to be an Elder.

Good discussion! πŸ™‚πŸ“–

Had one who developed dimentia and only two elders a man and his son in law. I mentioned to preacher and he told me I needed to have “compassion”. I told him had nothing to do with that but obedience to God and was Watching over HIS flock. No way he was doing elder work or had the mental capacity to do the work.

You wonder if some elders are "changing" things because their children have left.

Amen!! Elders must be willing to contend for the faith

Yes! If an Elder wife dies, he no longer is a husband of one wife.

1 Peter 5:2. Great application!

Prayers for those in St Vincent. Was teaching the gospel there in 1989.

Amen! Elders are a blessing!!

By the way, our volcano πŸŒ‹ on the main land of St. Vincent and the Grenadines πŸ‡»πŸ‡¨ that last erupted in April 1979, has been acting up with an effusive eruption since December 2020 and a few hours ago an evacuation order was given for the Red Zone (northern quarter of our mainland). Please remember us in your prayers.

A great study. Gave me a few different views while staying true to the biblical teaching. Love these discussions. ❀️✝️❀️

Watching from American Samoa!!

Watching from McKenzie, Alabama.

What if you have children that is 12, 14, 24. The 24 year becomes unfaithdul child of God. Can he still be an elder?

Where does the Gospel fit within the epidemic? Redeeming the souls.

Can you have elders without deacons?

I have a question- what if the elders are in error?

I've been part of congregations with very good elders, with poor elders and without elders. The only thing worse than no elders is poor elders.
