About this product
- DescriptionThis book challenges pastors to step down from their exalted position and return to the New Testament form of local church leadership by a council of elders-men whose character, t their gifts or degrees, qualify them to lead God's family on earth. It takes a tortured twisting of the words of Jesus and his disciples to defend the professional positions of today's clergy. The division between the clergy and the laity violates the teachings of Jesus and the practice of the apostles. Jesus did t appoint one of his disciples over the others. After his resurrection, ne claimed such a role. Neither Jesus r his disciples was a member of the religious hierarchy or a trained scholar. Yet he entrusted to them the mission of carrying the good news to the whole world. America needs a family, yet our churches look like any other corporate organization or political government. In The Pastors' Club, author Paul S. Lyon provides an analysis of the teachings of Jesus and his disciples demonstrating that only elders are called to collectively pastor and oversee the local church. A single local leader-pastor, bishop, priest, or even chief elder-has basis in scripture.
- Author BiographyPaul S. Lyon became a Christian in 1971 just prior to his senior year in high school. Lyon along with his brother and other musicians formed the band Liberation Suite-one of America's first Christian rock bands. They toured the western United States before moving to Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1974 during the Troubles. After moving to London they recorded their first album. They played throughout Europe and Scandinavia, including London's Royal Albert Hall, before returning to Texas in 1976. After graduating with a degree in accounting, Lyon became a CPA and worked for the state of Texas and various local governments as an auditor, administrator, and financial consultant. He also served as a worship leader and elder in a local charismatic church. After retiring, he formed his own consulting firm. He and his wife, Daryl, married in 1983 and have four children. They now attend a denominational pastor-led church.
