We love democracy. In fact, certain countries have invaded other countries to establish democracy. The Arab spring has as its goal democracy. No doubt democracy is a good thing, probably the best form of government in a fallen world. But we must remember that the church is not a democracy.
We can’t just do what we want to do or do what the majority of people think is the right thing to do. God had laid down in his word clear principles as to how the church should function. 1 Timothy 3:14-15 says, “Although I hope to come to you soon, I am writing you these instructions so that, if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God’s household, which is the church of the living God.”
