13 and dissemble with him also did the other Jews, so that also Barnabas was carried away by their dissimulation.

Your denial of the existence of spiritual authority will prevent you from making distinctions in the characteristics of the divine attributes.

It is interesting to see you referred to these verses as well as the follow up posts from you and Evangelical. It was quite like the disciples arguing who was greater in Mark 9.

When I look at Galatians 2:11-13 and 2 Peter 3:15-16, I see the attributes of true ministers:
(1) Paul was not afraid to challenge Peter, probably not because Paul thought he had the spiritual authority but he cared about what God truly wants.
(2) Peter was not offended and still loved Paul as mentioned in 2 Peter.

I try to imagine what would happen if someone challenges WL/LSM in the way Paul did. Probably we will see "passing gas" and "poisonous" in the response.

I don't know much about spirtual authority. But I am quite certain that it goes together with truth and humility.
