The Church of God, in a very special manner, calls Jesus "our Lord," for there is not, and there cannot be any head of the Church except the Lord Jesus Christ. It is awful blasphemy for any man on earth to call himself Christ's vicar and the head of the church, and it is a usurpation of the crown rights of King Jesus for any king or queen to be call the head of the church, for the true Church of Jesus Christ can have no head but Jesus Christ himself. I am thankful that there in no head to the church of which I am a member save Jesus Christ himself, nor dare I be a member of any church which would consent to any headship but his.
