Leadership Among Christians

Most Christian men get their view of what leadership should be from the world instead of from the New Testament. The influence on them comes from their workplace, popular culture, and religious traditions.

But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them. But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister: And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all. For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

Mark 10:42-45

Who Should Lead in the Body of Christ? - Scriptures

For a glimpse at the marketing of a twisted view of "servant leadership" see the following article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Servant_leadership
(I do not endorse the "vision" of Wikipedia but the encyclopedia is useful.)

Some who would be leaders think that leadership is telling others what to do and seeing them do it; or what to think and hearing them "parrot" it back.

Moses was a type of Christ. Korah sought to usurp the role of Moses. A most significant example of rebellion is when a clergyman seeks to usurp the role of Christ in the lives of the people.
