“Religious Leaders”

One thing Fat Beggars School of Prophets has notably in common with Jesus is our difficulty relating well with “religious leaders”.

Just sayin’…

What makes “religious leaders” so obstinate to the cause?  Then or now?

I would love to hear your thoughts on it.

    Then as now, religious leaders like to have control. Control of peoples spirits and minds. When someone such as yourself challenges the power that they exercise it is seen as a threat. All too often a top down hierarchy is established in churches, and not the kind where Jesus is at the top as the head of the church. You know, Protestants take great pride in their reformation, but as I see it they have only created many little popes instead. Like the story of the boy cutting up all the starfish on the beach, unknowingly creating as many new ones as he cut. Paul writes, “for the Body does not consist of one member but of many.” (1 Cor 12:14) It doesn’t mean that there aren’t legit leaders in the church (elders, deacons, etc), but in my experience all too often they are functioning as the “drunk servant” in Matthew 24 who “begins to beat his fellow servants” because the Master is gone.

    We all know the sharpest photocopies are made from originals, but if you make photocopies from other photocopies the results are not as sharp. Then, if you continue to make more photocopies from later photocopies, they end up being out of focus. This is true of our religious leaders. They are copies of copies of copies of copies of copies of long ago leaders, rather than being conformed to the original image of Jesus Christ.
