Escaping “Ministry”?

HUNDREDS OF CLOSETED ATHEIST PASTORS CONVERGE IN SECRETIVE ONLINE COMMUNITY — AND THIS NEW PROGRAM WILL HELP THEM ESCAPE MINISTRY

I saw this headline and I had to click over to The Blaze.com and read this story!

I even watched a video of a former Methodist Pastor who converted to atheism describe how she felt fully supported by the atheist community during her transition from faith to faith-less.  You can read the full story here, if you’d like.

My heart is grieved.  When will God’s people come to realize…………the system…what we have always known to be “church”, simply does not work.

In August of 2012, I made the following statement in a post entitled, The Clearly Unscriptural Role of Super Pastor and the Harm It Causes the Body of Christ.

“But, here’s the matter that concerns me.  I have seen too many brothers, well-meaning and intentioned, crash and burn from trying to be Super Pastor.  They are asked to do something that you can’t find in scripture and that Father NEVER ASKED THEM TO DO!  The really sad part is that their identities are in doing church that way and not in being a son of the Father.  It’s based on performance (for pay, reputation and identity.)  You have to be “ON” every Sunday; better than last week!  The numbers have to keep growing.  The buildings have to keep getting built.

My prayer is that the Body of Christ, all saints, will wake up to the truth that how we currently exist and function is NOT the Father’s heart for His people and is NOT the representation He desires to show the world.

Keep your peace!
