This thread raises an interesting point. Should the churches today use this method of casting lots to select office bearers? Obviously Paul's letters to Timothy and Titus give us the qualifications for an elder and a deacon. However, if you have a list of men who meet these qualifications would it be appropriate to select from among them by casting lots?

Are there any examples of casting lots after Penticost?
