Only One Leader, Jesus

I do not submit to the authority of a pastor or church leader. Their authority is man made and does not come from God. I have One Leader, One Teacher and that is Jesus Christ. The teachings of Jesus could not have been more clear on this point.
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) That does not mean I do not learn from others. I read blogs, books and will now and then listen to a sermon. We as followers of Jesus can learn from one another. It has however to do with authority. A lot of Christians will go to church and just blindly listen to a pastor because they believe they must be obedient to their church leaders.

By being obedient to your church leaders you are being disobedient to Jesus …
