Ordained Catholics are called "PRIESTS". This is NOT, of course, a Bible term for ordained men. The Bible calls them "ELDERS". Okay, why, then do most Baptists call them "PASTORS"? That word (used only ONCE in the New Testament) is just a small description of what an ELDER does. I was called a "Pastor" for years in the ministry. I was "Pastor Bob" until I earned my first doctorate and then became, duh, "Dr Bob". Now I list my title as "Teaching Elder". Wonder WHY the change in biblical terminology is so popular in Baptists who claim fidelity to the Bible in all things!! And WHY we use "pastor" rather than "elder" in most of our churches. No fight. No agenda. Just curiouser and curiouser as I get older. Thanks.
