To begin with, I simply despise the idea of their being a professional "clergy." (I refer to other Christians--including ministers--as "brother" and "sister"--not as "reverend.")

As for dogma that is "not something derived from the texts themselves but instead something the Church added into their religious beliefs by fiat," I totally--and unequivocally--reject that. (If one cannot show me a New Testament text that declares something--and convince me that it is for all time, not just for the first century--I will not accept the practice. And that is regardless of just how many church leaders may endorse it.)

So you don't think people should minister as a profession????
Or just just don't like the idea of titles?
