Antiquarian Anabaptist

Apologetics from an Anabaptist perspective

There is one Lord

Ministers are not lords over their congregations; husbands are not lords over their wives; parents are not lords over their children, employers are not lords over their employees. Yet God has delegated to each one of us a measure of responsibility, and even of authority. As long as we submit ourselves to the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ, and exercise of our responsibility as a service to Him and to others, it will produce harmonious results. When we try to impress others with the importance of our roles, the harmony disappears and people will get hurt, including ourselves.
