when one stops seeking a teacher in men, and is lead by the separating spirit within that only comes from new birth after the 2nd adam (yahshua, the anointed-messiah, kinsman-redeemer), perhaps then one will knock and the door into truth will be opened? followers of men, and leaders over men are both incorrect positions which cause much discord. Louis Beam's definition of leadership is the most practical wisdom I can find on the matter that's in harmony with the two great commandments: PRECEPTS OF LEADERSHIP - http://www.louisbeam.com/precepts.htm
what if
one created a study plan out of each precept point, and backed them up with all the scripture that applied? would we have a useful doctrine to show from our fruits after putting it into action?
