The existence of an elder implies the existence of a junior. The word “elder” is relative, not absolute. Even among the spiritually immature there are bound to be those who, in comparison with them, are more mature.

It is the responsibility of every saved man to serve the Lord according to his capacity and in his own sphere.

The Weakened and Lost Distinctiveness

I fear there is a tendency abroad to exaggerate the standing and state of the Old Testament saints in order to make little difference between the Church and Israel, and thus the heavenly distinctiveness is weakened and lost. The aim of the enemy from a very early date was to draw the saints from their heavenly calling. Once heaven as a present position and portion is surrendered, the great privilege and position of the Church, the Body of Christ, is drained away.

The fatal tendency of the church to pass from spiritual to moral issues, from evangelical effort to social sanitation, are but symptoms that the god of this eon is blinding the minds of the unbelievers in it.
