In search of a clear reformed paradigm on ecclesiastical authority
This article represents an effort to investigate the claim from different viewpoints that Jesus Christ is the real and sole authority in church polity. It is maintained in this article that different systems of church government replace in reality the ius divinum with a ius humanum. The church can only be governed by the authority of Jesus Christ in a ministry where the grounds for ecclesiastical decisions and directions are clearly pointed out from the Scriptures.
