There is a word in the New Testament that means, "seeking to occupy an office." We all know the offices that churches have: pastor, elder, deacon, etc. Well do you know what that word translates to? It translates to "selfish-ambition."
Galatians 5:19-20 says that seeking to occupy an office is a "work of the flesh."
James 3:14-16 calls it fleshly, worldly, & DEMONIC to seek to occupy an office! It also says that the desire to occupy an office "does not come down from above!!" There you have it. The bible says God does not tell people to seek to occupy offices & in fact suggests that demons are the ones who tell people to.
