THE BEST MEN
IN THE COUNTRY
OR THE WORST.
If they are faithful to the Word of God and seek God's Glory and not their own, they are the best. If they are unfaithful to the Word of God; seeking their own glory and using the Church for their own advantage, they are the worst. Judas was an example of the worst. Abraham, Moses and Jesus are examples of the best.
No Church has authority apart from the Word of God. The Church is given the word of God to proclaim it. "To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, (the Bible) it is because there is no light in them." Isa 8:20
