The bogus clergy/laity divide also instantly came to my mind. Does Stackhouse address this?

Michael W. Kruse

Not directly. I don't think he ever uses the words. However, he effectively dismantles much of the clergy/laity dualism in this chapter.

In my experience, when the dualism is directly addressed, many hear it as an argument that there should be no positions of authority in the church. I don't know that he had this specifically in mind but I think he effectively addresses the issues while avoiding the often unfruitful framing of clergy/laity.
