Not Every Man is Called of God

Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure. (1 Timothy 5:22 KJV)

God has given much responsibility to those He has called to preach.  They are responsible before God for their preaching, teaching, and leadership.  They are, in essence, holding the spiritual future of souls according to their teaching and direction of leadership.  Preachers cannot afford to take their office of spiritual authority lightly.

Paul is ...

Are You an “In Your Face” Kind of Christian?

But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed. (Galatians 2:11 KJV)

Paul was a spiritual “in your face kind of guy.”  He did not mince words or fail to act when it was proper to call somebody out for their sin or misdeed.  In fact, God’s Word calls us to rebuke those who are wrong.  There is a godly and ...

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame. (Hosea 4:6-7 KJV)

Sin destroys anyone who willingly chooses to turn their back ...
