Only One Leader, Jesus

Do you need to submit to the authority of your pastor? Do you even need to have a pastor or church leader? The teachings of Jesus could not have been any clearer on this point. We have one leader, and that is Jesus Christ.
But do not be called Rabbi (Teacher); for One is your Teacher, and you are all [equally] brothers. Do not call anyone on earth [who guides you spiritually] your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. Do not let yourselves be called leaders or teachers; for One is your Leader (Teacher), the Christ - Matthew 23:8-10 (AMP) When children of God comes together there is nothing wrong with someone taking the lead and making things a bit more organized. We all have different talents and God use all of us in different ways. Some of us will naturally be inclined and prefer to do some manual labor while others will just naturally be a bit more involved in organizing - nothing wrong with that.

You are however not required to submit to the authority of your pastor…
