Scripture… As We Live It #84

Posted by on Dec 13, 2009 in as we live it, scripture | 2 comments

This is the 84th passage in “Scripture… As We Live It“:

You [elders] yourselves know that these hands ministered to my necessities and to those who were with me until you could afford to pay us a salary. In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way in prayer and the study of Scripture we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed for others to give than to receive.’ (Acts 20:34-35 re-mix)

(Please read the first post for an explanation of this series.)

    Isn’t that the goal of every church plant, to get big enough to start paying a pastor “full-time”?

    ouch…

    I do think, though, in the US many churches are playing fast an loose with the term “church plant.”

    In some circles it is just a nice way of saying church split.
