BREED, Douw G.. Corresponding guidance by the RCSA's ministers of the Word: A study of the guidance provided by Peter, Paul and James on four occasions. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2011, vol.45, n.2-3, pp. 503-530. ISSN 1018-6441.
Differences between RCSA ministers in terms of their guidance from the Word of God have become increasingly apparent in recent years. It is clear that these differences among those who are called to lead are not in the best interest of the church. The present article sets out guidelines for church leaders - in casu, for ministers of the RCSA - to achieve non-conflicting guidance. These guidelines are presented after studying the guidance provided by Peter, Paul and James on four occasions when dealing with the matter of the Christians from the non-Jewish nations. The article focuses on the interrelationship between the three church leaders regarding the guidance that they offered, as well as guidelines that could be derived from their conduct to enable present-day church leaders to achieve non-conflicting guidance.
