This statement calls men only leaders, not followers. Not all males are are called to lead in the church, and men should follow too. We all should follow Christ. Church people, male and female, should follow good church leadership. Even leaders should not run a one-man show, but be accountable to other leaders.
(Note: Many Christians all over the world believe, with good reasons, that women could be church leaders too. However, I do not find the “women in church leadership” topic simple enough to discuss in this section.)
