If the church is the body of Christ, then the dynamic behind it is that it’s members move together only at the direction of it’s Head, Jesus Himself. It is the nature of this dynamic, along with its practical implications that are explored in this talk. Growth, development, even biblical patterns of structure and the like must only be implemented as directed by the Lord Himself, and according to His timing. This is what differentiates churches which are organisms from those which are merely organisations. Beresford also deals with the issue of the clergy/priesthood and laity divide, demonstrating just how far removed from the teaching of the Bible it actually is. It is quite impossible for body life to become a reality in a church as long as false and totally unbiblical divisions of personnel are to be found within it.
