Do you now see, why probably some leaders want to hold on to people? It’s followership they want, and of course yourself you want to be led. If you are a believer, ask yourself who should I be following? Please let it not be a hypocrite!
The Holy Spirit is the only one who can lead you into all truth. Not this business where "one saith, I am of Paul; [and another saying,] I am of Apollos" 1 Corinthians 3:4.
If that’s what you do, you are yet carnal, and you need one teach you again the foundations.
If you’re still looking to men as your leader; you’ve lost the faith towards God and that of sound doctrine. If you’re a leader who’s busy pointing people to yourself, "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves" Matthew 23:15.
Paul says, "Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?" 1 Corinthians 3:5.
He says, "So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour" 1 Corinthians 3:7-8.
One day we shall receive the fruit of our labour, but that receiving isn’t today! Instead we all great and small should follow the direction of our guide, the Holy Spirit.
