Welcome to Fire On Your Head, the podcast designed to "kick you out of the upper room". We're a discussion and interview-styled show hosted by me, Steve Bremner, a blogger, author, and missionary to Peru. Join me as I interview authors and other interesting people, and sometimes post shows just by myself getting something out of my system. Sometimes I'm funny, sometimes serious, but hopefully you'll find it always worthwhile.

Have you ever been told you’re in rebellion if you don’t obey your leaders?  

Have you ever been taught spiritual authority, that emphasized complicity with leaders for complicity’s sake alone because, “they’re above you?”  

Or, have you ever been told you need to be “under a spiritual covering” or curses from God will fall on you?  

If so, then have we got quite a discussion for you today.

Join us this week as Steve Bremner has a sacred cow barbecue with a couple of insightful authors:  

SJ Hill, international speaker and author of Enjoying God and previous recurring guest on the podcast, along with Dr Stephen R. Crosby, author of Authority, Accountability and the Apostolic Movement.

We tackle this stuff today:

Do we base our idea of accountability on the Bible, or businesses or even the military?  

Is accountability enforced or lived out by signing documents?  

Does the Bible really teach pastors or leaders are superior in any way to the rest of the Body of Christ?
