I am curious as to what people define as proper Pastoral authority vs Abusive authority.... in particular, does your Pastor control finances (or the financial branch) of your church? Also in areas of personnel? Also the social aspects, does he need to approve of your sunday school socials for instance? Should one man control all these areas? I have found that organized denominational churches are less likely to have a Pastoral abuse of power senerio.... I am looking for the valid, scriptual definition of Pastor vs the abusive power hungry kind.
