Vote on everything
Western churches vote on everything
do parents take a poll with their children to decide if the would rather have green beans or french fries?
The Holy Spirit has gifted people with the spiritual giftedness. Part of that is shepherding the sheep. That means they should have the biblical discernment, wisdom to determine the best way to feed the sheep. And the fortitude to tell the sheep no – even when they whine or throw fits.
There was no voting in the bible – God lead the leader and the leader(s) lead the people.
Romans 12:1-2 isn’t just talking about girls wearing short shorts. It’s also speaks to this problem of nationalized forms of government invading the Church. When democracy invades the Church then people become their own shepherds and there really isn’t a need for any others.
