John Piper: Pastors Are Not Infallible or Ultimate Authority

Popular theologian and Desiring God founder John Piper says it's a good practice for Christians to make sure their pastors and church leaders agree with the teachings of the Bible. Pastors are not infallible, and should not be taken as the ultimate authority, he cautioned.

"The Bible is the ultimate authority and infallible, not the pastor and not the elders. And it doesn't mean that you believe everything he says without examining it," said Piper in a recent discussion about whether or not online sermons undermined local churches.

He explained that while the Bible advises Christians to submit to the authority of their spiritual leaders and encourages respect for the office of the pastor, it doesn't mean Christians are supposed to accept everything church leaders tell them as the infallible word. On the contrary, he noted, the Bible represents Christians who track the leadership of their pastors ...

What a shame it's not for real.

Wouldn't it be great if that were to happen for real!

Let's pray and fast for him/her so that he/she will experience the new birth. Nothing like the new birth to set one free from the hocus pocus of infant baptism.

Verbal dunking for some of the Baptists around here has become idolatry and their posts reveal venom of the heart against other Christians. Such is their extremism that verbal dunking for them becomes baptismal regeneration because of their belief that they are "the only saved."

Come now John, surely even you are aware that all heresy is concealed by ignorance.

1. LIES are not facts.
2. You practice something that is not biblical and so your attachment to the practice is idolatrous.
3. Never have we witnessed ignorance as great as yours!

I know I lied in my last post about what Baptists believe and in keeping with genuine Christianity, to which, until this act, I have been a complete stranger, humbly apologise for my lies and deception. I confess that to date the Presby confessions of faith and their writings have been my bible and that I have never cared for nor read or studied God's word which in my pride I set at nought. In fact through party spirit, which very agreeably fuelled my pride, I have tried to counter the teachings of the Word of God, for which may God have mercy on my soul.

Please pray for the darkness of my mind and the hardness of my heart. May God make me teachable and humble.

I am repenting of my former sins and will from now cease to use the legion monikers that I have used to hide under.

Baptists and baptismal regeneration -

If you look at previous Baptists posts their reaction to other denominations is so severe as to reject the regeneration of other denominations on the basis of verbal dunking, (Baptist form baptism).

Baptists with these obstinate dogmatics in verbal dunking reach to the realm of idolatry and they deny the salvation of those who do not accept their form of baptism ceremony.

Thus do these Baptists credit their form of baptism with unique baptismal regeneration; - in extreme opposition to paedobaptism (effusion) which was the only form of baptism since Biblical times till AD1521

Thanks Lurker, we declare the Bible is infallible, not something out of Roman Catholic Authority (PDF) which has created the pagan Popish Baptism.

As I have pointed out in an easy to read html format sometime in the past I've pointed that out anyway, you should read, Baptism: Truth or Tradition. How does Gil Rugh come up with what is in that ebooklet? Of course he shuns Romish allegory, as do all good pastors!

Gil Rugh said or, wrote:
Allegory opens the door to error as the word of God becomes subject to man's reasoning and interpretation.
from the summary for the sermon, The Bible: Clearly & Literally True. It is definitely worth listening to.

Thats stange.
The Baptists posting on this site declare that they are infallible, whether pastor or pew filler. In fact they teach baptismal regeneration ONLY by dunking and verbalised authentication.
Don't feed the trolls.

Sorry (not really) to bust your bubble but what you posted just ain't true.

So as kindly as I might you should consider humbly repenting for bearing false witness about the (quote) Baptists that are posting on this site.

AND while you are at it, honestly ask yourself why you would do such a thing? so that you might deal with whatever the Lord Jesus Christ sees is going on in your heart.

Quite right, because one thing is for certain! Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No. (PDF)

There is really quite good agreement from pastors who never met each other, as long as they follow the Principles of Bible Interpretation, When pastors don't follow, a literal, grammatical, historical way of interpreting the Bible, this creates Why the Differences Over What the Bible Says.

But, again, a church leader has to be a Christian in the first place, the leaders of the Roman Catholics, Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses (PDF) aren't, which is why you get so much anti-Christian messages from them.
