comment Qualifications for deacons and pastors in 1 Timothy 3:1-12
@Jas3.1 Wouldn't a pastor usually be an overseer? Speaking of pastors as in Eph 4:11 (are there any others?).

Paul excludes men with multiple wifes at one time and/or misbehaving children, and new converts.

In this passage, their is no office of teacher, but there is the teacher's office in Eph 4:11. As with women: remember that there is no more man or woman according to Paul - not talking women's lib and equality here, but would that change the discussion about women becoming teachers?

comment What types of birth were meant by 'blood', 'will of the flesh', and 'will of man'?
@Narbian I think what you say fits into the categories, but is not exclusive. Belonging to a church or having Christian parents (descent) also fits like everything I try to earn salvation by like good works or what any other proclaims over me. It is all by God's grace.

I agree that this is out of scope as a discussion, yet not as a clarification of part of your string of thoughts here. Paul in 1Co 16:19 talks of the body being the temple, contemplating on 1Co 16:18, where he talks of the sinner's own body.

About Ezekiel 47: Paul tells us that we are the temple of God, so it could well be possible again that the source is the believer, couldn't it?
