If a man is authorized to speak for God, like the Prophet, does that mean that God must then keep quiet?
Is there such a thing as a prophet outside of the church organization? What about a prophetess?
There were lots of those in the scriptures. Prophecy is a gift of the Spirit, everyone is counseled to seek after the gifts of the Spirit. Not everyone is called to preside over the church, and no one is called to disrupt the hierarchy but everyone is called to draw near unto God.
