The Christian Church has one leader: Jesus Christ.
Nowhere in the Gospel does Jesus appoint the Apostles as leaders; not one over the others, nor them over anyone. Jesus told them to go and preach the Gospel throughout the earth. Jesus never taught them to lord themselves over others or to take control of others in any way.
Know you that all that leadership nonsense of the churches is a design of men, with but one intent: to gain control over you, thus increasing their power while they also gain a commodity and add to their source of income. It is all about money with the churches of men. And from the very beginning, it has been so.
Jesus told the Apostles, and 70 other he chose to preach the Gospel to the people, assuring the Apostles that the Holy Ghost shall make them recall all things that had happened during their time with him, what also enabled them to write the Gospels.
So, do not look up to titles, educational qualifications, the wealth or size of a congregation, the wealth of persons or the multitudes their preachings have reached, but look at the truth of the Gospel in comparison with what they preach, like I put it to you, with biblical evidence by means of links to scriptural text. For, indeed, many are called but few are chosen: and so there shall always be many millions more discarded than there will be ‘chosen’.
