THE BRETHREN-WHAT IS SO UNIQUE ABOUT THEM!!

  BIBLICAL IN REJECTION 

3. Salaried Priesthood Is Rejected:
According to the word, a person is to be paid a
salary when he is employed by someone. Thus
the moment people brought in the worldly
system of a special priestly class “appointed”
by the church, they also brought in the
concept of paying them a salary. Thus the
priests in these churches are hirelings of the
church, not servants of Christ.
These priests and pastors are subject to a
human office, central authorities, and are
liable for transfer exactly the way it happens
in government offices. There is also plenty of
lobbying for transfer to better (rich) churches,
and those who go against the hierarchy are
sent to bad churches as “punishment
transfer”.
There is absolutely no Scriptural warrant for these
things and the Brethren reject it
All of the above happens when the house of
God is managed using earthly principles. There
is absolutely no command or precedent for
such man-made organization in the New
Testament church. The Brethren therefore
reject the Salaried Priesthood as a totally
man-made and carnal institution. Those who
serve as evangelists and elders in Brethren
assemblies do not serve a human hierarchy.
They do so unto God, and no salary is every
given to them. There are neither transfers to
rich churches for one’s favorite people, not
punitive transfers to those who do not
conform to the hierarchy.
What is done unto the Lord is done in faith,
and it is the Lord who looks after them, not a
manipulation-prone and sin-prone human
hierarchy. The Brethren are unusual in this
aspect of their church, and they take this
stand so as to conform as closely as possible
to the model provided by the Bible

ROMANIAN TRANSLATION FROM VESTEA BUNA

 

Biblici în respingere. Mărturia fraților din India (3). Preoția salarizată este respinsă.

 Preoţia salarizată este respinsă

Potrivit Cuvântului, o persoană trebuie să fie plătită cu un salariu atunci când este angajată de cineva. Prin urmare
oamenii au ajuns în sistemul lumesc al unei caste  speciale preoţeşti ”numită(unsă)” de biserică, de asemenea au acceptat să plătească acestora un salariu. Astfel, preoţii în aceste biserici sunt angajați de biserică, nu slujitori ai lui Hristos.
Acești preoţi şi pastori fac obiectul unei autorități umane, autorităţi centrale  şi sunt supuși transferărilor exact aşa cum se întâmplă în slujbele guvernamentale. Se face de asemenea mult lobby pentru un transfer la o biserică mai bună (bogată)
şi cei care merg împotriva ierarhiei sunt trimiși la biserici mai rele  ca ”transfer-pedeapsă”.
Nu există absolut nici un mandat scriptural pentru aceste lucruri şi fraţii le resping.
Toate cele de mai sus se întâmplă atunci când casa lui Dumnezeu este gestionată cu ajutorul unor principii pământeşti. Nu
este absolut nici o poruncă sau precedent pentru astfel de  organizaţii făcute de om  în Biserica Nou Testamentală.
Fraţii, prin urmare resping Preoţia Salarizată ca fiind o instituție în totalitate făcută de om și carnală.
Cei care slujesc ca evanghelişti şi bătrâni în adunările fraților nu slujesc o ierarhie umană.
Ei fac acest lucru lui Dumnezeu, şi nu primesc fiecare un salariu.
Nu sunt nici transferuri către biserici bogate pentru unii favoriți, nici transferuri punitive(de pedeapsă) pentru cei ce nu se conformează ierarhiei.
Ce se face pentru Domnul se face în credinţă şi  Domnul le poartă de grijă, nu o ierarhie umană predispusă la păcat și manipulare.
Fraţii sunt ciudați  în acest aspect al bisericii lor şi ei să iau această poziție pentru ca să se conformeze cât mai strâns posibil
modelului oferit de Biblie.

THE BRETHREN-WHAT IS SO UNIQUE ABOUT THEM!!

THE RIGHT EMPHASIS

5. The Necessity Of Planting
Churches:

The last two centuries were
times of great revival and evangelistic activity
for many. However, a good number of such
high-visibility evangelists prefer to send
people back to their own man-made,
compromising, churches after people accept
Christ. A good modern example is the Billy
Graham Evangelistic Association which claims
to have led hundreds of thousands to the
Lord. However, once a person accepts Christ
through them, the Lutheran is sent to his
Lutheran church and the Roman Catholic back
to his Catholic church.
In other words, once people come to Christ,
there is a tendency in most evangelistic
activities to send them back to their own
man-made denominations. This would quickly
sap their new-found joy, deprive them of their
spiritual priesthood, and would subject them
to a man-made and exploitative hierarchy.
Soon their spiritual joy would be quenched.
However, the Brethren have always stood for
nurturing new believers. For this they plant
new churches whenever there are two or
three new believers are there. They do not
worry about numbers, buildings, or a special
man-made priesthood. On the contrary, their
whole attention is upon the spiritual growth
of the new believers and that is why
church-planting is given high priority where
there are two or three news believers. This is
something unique to the Brethren.
