Here’s how you deal with people who rub you up the wrong way…
The plan that God has for His church can’t be brought into effect by just your pastor.
I have had many shepherds in my life, some wonderful, caring men of God, and others who have used the rod and the staff in a damaging way. God still raises up Shepherds to lead his people today, just as he did with Moses and Joshua.
Paul had a pretty strong view on free loaders. He was a very strong leader, who made wrote very clear instructions in his letters. I have a few thoughts on this.
I would much rather spend time with a lost person sharing the gospel, or discipling a new Christian than anything else. That’s the way I fight against the darkness.
