..... expected to be in COMPLETE agreement with EVERY doctrinal position that his/her pastor maintains? Down through the years of my "Christian Experience" [48+ years], I heard folks say that unless a member is in complete agreement with his pastor on doctrines and practices, that member has no business being a member of that church. So, my question is this: Is the above position really correct? EX: If the pastor holds to some position on prophecy, must each member also hold that same position [e.g., the interpretation of some of the "judgments" mentioned in Revelation; the exact contents of "the cup" used in the Lord's Supper [wine or grape juice]; tithing [Is a member duty-bound to tithe; does one's tithe go only to his local church, or can some of it go towards supporting other Christian organizations? If the pastor is KJVO, must each member also be KJVO?]. I could go on, but I think that you can see the point I'm trying to make. What are your thoughts on this?
