Rev. J. S. Shannon's Ordina tion Endorsed by Council Natchitoches, La., Sept. 22, 1921. On the above date an Exparte Coun cil met with the First Baptist Church, No. 1, Natchitoches, Louisiana, at the request of Kev. J. S. Shannon. This council was held in this church with her consent 7 his council was called by Rev. Jesse S. Shannon because the question of his having been properly ordained had been called in question and declared bogus and null and void. The council was further called to dis cuss and advise as to the authority of the association over ministers, deacons and mombers of churches. The council was composed of Kev. Ezra K.. Shults (white), pastor of the Natchitoches Baptist church, and Rev. Ben .1. How ard. of the New Zion Baptist church, Powhattan, La. The council met as per invitation at ten a. m. Sept. 22. 1921. As to the ordination of Rev. Jesse S. Shannon, the council is of the follow ing opinion: The ordaining council which ordained Rev. Shannon was called regularly by the church of which he was a member and by said church were asked to take up the matter of his ordination and if found worthy they were to ordain him. While the council does not deem it absolutely essential to ordination, yet it appears that there was in sight and hand work Rev. Shan non was expected to do, and work which would require his being ordained. The only authority this council knows of aS being competent to pass on this question was tne churcn he was a member of and the ordaining council. Both of these believed be should be ordained. The ordaining council or presbytery was composed of five regu larly ordained ministers. This appears from the records of the meeting held to ordain. From the records of the church of which Rev. Shannon waa and is a m e mber, and from the record left by the presbytery, this council believes that Rev. Shannon was duly and prop erly ordained, and as farther evidence, he had ordination papers properly made out and ' signed by the presbytery who ordained him. It is the opinion of this council that the right and power to ordain to. the Gospel ministry is vested in the local church and that since this is true, it is equally true that only the local church of which a minister is a member can nulify or call in his ordina tion papers. No association nor con vention nr. a this right or power. If an association or convention has a griev ance or believes a minister unworthy then they should cal) a common counci with the church of which said minister is a member and after a full and thor ough investigation advise the church as to the action this common council would recommend. The church could then take up the matter and decide on its course as to the Brother. But in no case is the church forced to act as advised. There is no authority above a regularly organized Baptist church and New Testament church. Any action of an association as to the ordi nation of administer can not affect his or any other local church. He is still an ordained minister. The association is a man-made institution and the church is Divine, of Christ- Since this is true, the association has no wer other than that delegated to it iy the churches, and this is only as matters affect the association. As to the right of the association to levy assessments or dues, this is, or ought to be, easily adjusted. If the association says you shall pay a certain sum or you shall not be a member, of the association, this is valid, but in no way nor sense does it effect your standing in your local church. It is with you to pay or not to pay, and the association can take whatever action it sees fit as to your standing in the association, but your local church is the power to which you must answer in all things. 'This council questions the wisdom and right to make laws for lng. The Ola Testament law per haps passed, bat. it is new voluntary and ought to be no less than the tiths. To Jbe sure no religious body can run long and far without money, and wise means ought to be devised for securing this money, and then at the end of each year at least there ought to be an accounting for every cent so paid in. The churches and individuals have a right to know what has been done with the money collected. Every cent should M accounted for. If all the brethren will bear in mind the fact that the local church to the one New Testament organization with authority, it will help us to know our bounds better. In all of the New Testament writings it is the Church spoken of as having authority. In re ceiving members, in ordaining minis ters, or deacons, in disciplining mem bers, in administering the ordinances, it is always the Church. EZRA. K. SHUNTS, Moderator. BENJ.
