    Totally disagree. We are not Roman Catholilcs. Paul was Paul. Jesus was Jesus. Peter was Peter. John was John. There are far too many popes in Evangelicalsim and it is this kind of “lording it over’ that has caused so much havoc. We can respect our leaders and still call them by their name.

      Actually Paul referred to himself as an apostle in many of his letters.

        He, not the other ever brethren once called him ‘Apostle Paul’ as a title *since Jesus forbids religious titles. Of course Jesus forbids so much that takes place in the institutional church system but that doesn’t stop anybody from religious theater.

    Sadly, Todd is becoming completely delusional and is describing the old way of doing things in reformed churchianity. Literally everything he says is contradicted by scripture and I am embarrassed for him. Jesus says we are all brethren (not clergy/laity), forbids religious titles, and Peter tells (1 peter 5) that elders are to lead from among the body – not as protestant popes hiding behind pulpits and playing churchianity. I wonder what a terror it will be when so many of these men are being cast into hell alongside those such as Rob Bell and others they teach against. I would implore all not to think of the the late 1500’s as the ‘old path’ but look into the new testament instead. The word of God is more powerful than semi reformed roman catholicism.

    Matthew 23 NKJV

    ,,,They make their phylacteries broad and enlarge the borders of their garments. 6 They love the best places at feasts, the best seats in the synagogues, 7 greetings in the marketplaces, and to be called by men, ‘Rabbi, Rabbi.’ 8 But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi’; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethren. 9 Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. 10 And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ. 11 But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.

    Interesting, maybe. Necessary, I don’t agree. Gods word and work aren’t about outward appearance. A title should be respected and I know it is. All of our staff pastors as well as those of us not on the payroll are comfortable with either pastor / first or last name. In fact, since most folks coming to our church are either unchurched or lacking in being a Christian, they almost idolize pastors. We must be very cognizant of deflecting all praise to God alone. I did the robe thing for years. Now we are dress as you are. Jesus and the disciples were as regular as the people they went to. Their authority came from the very word they preached!! Airline pilot analogy misses the mark. They aren’t there to relate. They are there to do a very specific job and must be identifiable immediately!!
