This past week, one person asked me about religious titles. As most people know, church leaders and workers are called by numerous titles and honors in the religious world. The individual asked, “Is the use of titles, in religious circles, in harmony with New Testament teachings?” I personally have been called a number of different names, such as: pastor, preacher, minister, reverend, etc… Not all of them accurate. However, in different denominations religious leaders are called priest, pope, elder, pastor, bishop, arch-bishop, angel, prophet, brother, sister, etc… It can be hard to keep it all straight. However, biblical terminology should be important for everyone to consider because how a person uses the words in the Bible can exalt or condemn a believer (Matt. 15:11; Eph. 4:29).
