Origin Of The Title Reverend
The titles that we are given in scripture are: pastor, bishop, elder, and minister not reverend. I understand that one who plays a violin is a violinist and if we are to reverence God we should be called reverends, well, if that's the case every believer would be a reverend. Nevertheless, lets stay with scripture and call those of us that serve in the office minister, pastor, bishop, or elder. I'm reluctant to say apostle due to the specific qualification of having to have seen Christ in the flesh or have a Pauline experience. This is not to be dogmatic.:-)
