So how did that work out for you?

Not being flippant here, but just so we can dismiss the silly notion that replacing the hierarchy with laity would solve every issue. This democratic setup hasn't prevented the pastor from act contrary to Christian principle.
It's anything but peace and love at a Chester County church. Members say their pastor is threatening to have them arrested and they've done nothing wrong.
Just remember there is a human side to every Church, ecclesial body, or sect. And where there is a human element, there is potential, or rather, certainty that sin will be evident.

As Mark Shea often points out, it is a good thing too, because that means all of us will fit right in.
