Lukewarm Christians PDF Print E-mail
Written by Josh Winslett

The word lukewarm, by itself, means to be; not ardent; not zealous; cool; indifferent. That definition is where I start my understanding about lukewarmness. The word “lukewarm” appears only once in scripture. It appears in a letter that Jesus was audibly giving to the apostle John to deliver unto the angel of church of the Laodiceans.

Revelation 3:14-19
, "And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent."

Render Unto Caesar - Tax Time Again PDF Print E-mail

A couple of years ago, my wife and I decided to refinance our home. We are budget minded people, have no credit cards and avoid debt if at all possible. Needless to say, when the rates dropped down into the low 3% range a refi was too good to pass up.

 

Once we began the process, we were alarmed to find out a refinance was not possible because I had not been receiving a W2 for church "income" and therefore could not claim it on the application. Even though I had other forms of income (Land surveying, teaching trumpet lessons), the amount given to me by the church I serve was a large enough portion of our family budget that without it being shown on the application I certainly did not qualify for the loan.

How Should Preachers Be Educated? PDF Print E-mail
Written by Ben Cordes

And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
2 Timothy 2:2

 

Education is greatly emphasized in our world, today, as it should be.  After all, who wants an uneducated world?  However, what we are teaching/learning is far more important and should be our greatest concern.  Being a minister, I often get questions from every-day acquaintances, such as “where did you receive your education as a minister?”  This question may be an uncomfortable one for some ministers to answer, but for me it is easy and gives me great pleasure to reply with “from the Bible”.  Now, granted, I have learned many things from many ministers and I have read several theological writings however, the book that I have studied and continue to study on a daily basis is the word of God.  It is the foundation on which each minister has instructed me from and the source of the topics which theologians elaborate.  If what we are teaching/learning is most important, then the greatest and safest content we could ever learn is found in the Bible.
