celafoe-I believe the best asnswer that can be given is found in a Hub by PlanksandNails in a comment which was made to me. This is a direct quote from him;
" In contrast, when reading through the New Testament, the Eccklesia did not allow themselves to elevate themselves among each other with hierarcchel expressions, but considered everyone as equal as brethren. The Eccklesia used functional terms among each other, such as, labourer, brother, fellow-worker, beloved, slave,fellow-servant, prisoiner, fellow-soldier, steward, etc..."
These terms expressed by PlanksandNails can be found throughout the New Testament. I could spend hours here listing all the verses.
I believe this quote from PlanksandNails best describes those of the Eccklesia as he said in "functional terms." And I agree with him.
