Did the members of the early church have a vote like we do today? Did they get to vote on installing AC? I don't think so! So why do we run our churches like a democracy today? We vote on everything: vote in Pastors, Deacons, Elders. We vote on the color of the carpet, and where to have the church picnic? Is there anything that comes about in our churches that don't require a vote? Didn't Paul tell Timmy to appoint elders? Did the church vote on the life of the couple that lied to the Holy Ghost? I got an idea... Let's vote out the vote... What say ye?
