REMOVING THE BAR

with tongue-firmly-planted-in-cheek, or maybe not . . .

GIVEN THE DIRTH OF WORKERS FOR MINISTRY within the walls of the church, and given the increasingly common need to lower-the-bar, I suggest that we remove the bar altogether!

Wouldn't be so much easier, and less guilt producing, if we would just let anyone apply for any needed position? Seems to me we don't seek to fully uphold the Apostle Paul's admonitions to Timothy and Titus, (1 Timothy 3:1-12; 2 Timothy 2:1-26; Titus 1:5-9) never-mention-the-fact it's God's Word.

OK, so let's just take the easy road . . .whadduyasay?

Want some thought-provoking reading? Try Martin Bucer's 1538 little book, Concerning the Care of Souls.
