Johnny's Comment

My brother Johnny said this here, on the subject of titles:
Whatever elders, pastors, teachers, deacons, etc... were in the first century, they were good things; GOD things. It is a shame that people have misused and misplaced those...words. It has done some serious damage in the body of Christ.
In the words of Hank Hill and friends - Yep. Yep. Uh-huh. Ye-ep.

Well said, bro. Let's rediscover these good GOD things, instead of fighting about words.

Yes. How about we rediscover and not be *afraid* of these words?

I think that trying to use new ones might just add more fractures to the already splintered up body.

...oh, and to be fair, no I don't think that those words have been misused or misplaced on every occasion of their use. In other words, yes, I do believe that that there are probably many 'pastors' who truly are pastors, and the same for elders and all the rest.
