I have noticed that throughout the New Testament the work of overseeing and shepherding the Church is solely the responsibility of the Elders and never is it the task of someone called a "pastor." In Ephesians 4:11 the word for shepherd is translated "pastor" using a Latin term. What I do not understand is that this is such an obvious truth and yet those who consider themselves strict holders to biblical truth ignore this fact. Upon what authority have the Elders been dismissed and replaced with a pastor. Comment would be most welcome.
