There is a great controversy in churches over the meaning of terms like elder, episkopos216, protos episkopos, leitourgos, huperetes, diakonos217, poimen.218 After two thousand years of gainsaying and vanity, and because of the divisions and impotence of the modern church, confusion reigns over the minds of the people and their churches. There were many offices within the body of the Church and few understand their purpose, authority, or titular nature.

A corporation in civil law is two or more people, acting as one person, for a particular purpose, under a preexisting authority. The corporations of men are the institution of men who make things in their own image, often playing god in their own efforts. The Family is the first institution of God. It is His Holy estate. Within the family there are offices of Husband and Father, Wife and Mother but also there is the office of Son and Daughter. Each had their rights and responsibilities passed down from generation to generation.

”And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.” Genesis 7:1

The word Elder is not an office of the Church, but an office of the Family. The apostles no more appointed men to the office of elder than they could appoint a man to the office of Father. These are terms of nature and nature’s God.

Rome fell when the sacredness of the family was diminished by the demise of a need for the family. When the state became Father of all, the head of the family was cut off. As the fathers of families decreased Rome declined. Without the natural fathers they became a nation of orphans and widows and the foundation of all society, which is the family, failed.
