Part time

If you are a pastor who must work to support yourself allow some suggestions. 1.) Make it part-time. 2.) Work for someone else (unless you are VERY disciplined) so it remains part-time. 3.) Avoid sales work – when you later are a full-time pastor they may still associate you with “x” product. 4.) On the days (or afternoons or AMs) you’re not doing secular work make and keep a schedule of praying, Bible study, and calling in the community.

The mountain climbers who do the BIG mountains climb full-time. Christians who reach the highest peaks for Jesus “climb” full-time. Some mountain climbers climb till they die, die (sometimes alone in a storm) on those high cold slopes. All saints in heaven climbed till they died, died with Christ beside them on the Son-lit, near-ascent to heaven.

People who do NOT want to think about God, who want to spend little time with Him, who hate God are going to “spend” eternity very aware of Him. By joyous contrast – those who enjoy God’s presence, who have spent a lot of One-on-one time with the Almighty, are going to get to extend that privilege f-o-r-e-v-e-r.

What do you believe?

The Word of God? The images of satan? What you read in the ageless yet timely Bible? What you saw on the new but temporary TV? “But it was put on by X university/school.” Does that make it nearer the truth? It depends on what YOU believe. “But there are different versions of the Bible.” It depends on what YOU believe.

We WILL be fooled by images if we are foolish enough to not believe God’s Word.

Ante-Nicene Quote

“For life would fail me, were I to undertake to go over the subject in detail,

to expose the selfish plagiarism of the Greeks, and

how they claim the discovery of the best of their doctrines, which they have received from us.”

– Clement, STROMATA, or Miscellanies
