MM Book 1 Chapter 5-10

The seeds of a hierarchical government were planted very early - the Hebrew and English Lexicon of the Old Testament [by Brown, Driver, and Briggs] states that "baal" means owner or lord - it comes from another Hebrew word that means to possess in marriage - the false god Baal's very name shows its purpose: ** to rule over, exercise authority, and to have possession ** of others! -- but this is not God's purpose; notice what our Savior said in Matthew 20:25-28: "But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise *dominion over them*, and they that are great exercise *authority upon them*. But ** it shall not be so among you **: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister [Common Ministrant in humility; a verb not a noun]; And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your ** servant **: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but ** to minister **, and to give his life a ransom for many."
