In the Church…


titles are tools, the designation of roles to the end that the people of God would be nurtured and preserved. No less, but certainly no more. Titles are a temporary gift and the worst thing would be that a person who has one would lose themselves in it by forgetting that, in the end, the only title that will matter is “Christian.” You can have none of the titles in the Church and still be just fine if you’re truly “Christian”. You can have all the titles of the Church except “Christian” and be utterly lost.
