Leading men

David Pharr quotes this piece from an old book by William Butler:

At the Brents-Ditzler debate, at Murray, Ky., Jacob Ditzler said to me: “Brother Butler, I am satisfied that the leading men among your people are going to depart from the doctrine of baptism for the remission of sins.” I replied: “Certainly they are. There is nothing in the kingdom that can stand before leading men; but I want you to remember that I am not a leading man. I am a following man; and as long as I follow Christ and his apostles, there is no danger of my departing from the doctrine.”
