    Does God calls someone to the Office of Bishop?

    in Religion

    I am almost ashame to even address this question.  Because a simple reading of Scripture proves that the answer is YES.  Anyone who can pick up a concordance will see that the word episcopos or bishop is found in Acts 20:28 - the Holy Ghost has made you episcopos or bishops (bishop and overseer are one and the same) to feed (poimen or pastor or shepherd) the church of God.

    Not one time in Scripture is someone called PASTOR in the NEW TESTAMENT.  But we have word four PASTORAL EPISTLES.

    The Bishop is the PASTOR found in Ephesian 4:11.

    Note the Apostle Paul mentions two types of elders in 1 Timothy 5:17 that RULES the local church - the ruling elder and the elder that labour in WORD and DOCTRINE aka the BISHOP/Pastor.

    Paul writes Timothy and Ephesians to the Church at Ephesus.  

    We need to stop trying to interpret Scripture with the MESS from today and look back in time and see how they saw the Bishop then.  There are enough records and writings out so as the scriptures says -- brethren you would not be ignorant.

    You need more information get the 2013 and 2014 Syllabus from the COAAB website www.coaab.org.  Pre-order our 2015 Syllabus where we deal with the FOUR-FOLD ministry.

    Clerical Formation Process

    in Religion

    What do you suggest as the process to train and develop clergy? Clergy Formation is the process of discerning, identifying, equipping, empowering, and releasing clergy to minister.   Individuals will discern a sense of call with their pastor, local church, and the Diocese; they will undergo background, psychological and marital evaluations; take an ordination exam; participate in interviews with the Bishop, ordination committe and others as they go through the process of clerical formation.


    Though a degree may not be require for ordination, it is expected that candidates will avail themselves of theological training and continuing education opportunities.


    What type of knowledge and level of scripturaldevelopment should one have before they are sent out.

    Dr. Vincent Bacote on Transformed Traveler...finding a purpose

    in Lifestyle

    Dr. Vincent Bacote is the featured guest on Transformed Traveler today. Our discussion is about finding your purpose in life through adventure travel.


    FIND MEANING IN YOUR WORK


    New Documentary Connects Your Identity in Christ to Your Daily Vocation


     


    (Naples, FL)  Everyone does NOT have a dream job.Millions of people have unfulfilling jobs and are unhappy in their work. But what if we are looking at our work all wrong? A new documentary is challenging Christians to look at work in a whole new way. Going On Vocation bucks the popular trend in today’s culture to “follow your bliss” and reveals how you can connect your identity Christ to any vocation and find your calling.


    "If we do not connect our faith to our work then Christianity becomes nothing more than a leisure time activity," says Dr. Greg Forster, program director at the Kern Family Foundation. Faith should not be turned off when we are on the job. Faith should permeate our attitudes and our actions in every aspect of life.


    “Viewing our work as serving God and serving others is transformational if we truly grab a hold of that concept,” says Dr. Chris Armstrong, a faculty member in Biblical and Theological Studies at Wheaton College. “We can find joy in helping people in a God-honoring way”


    Going on Vocation is a two-part documentary teaching series. Through personal stories of ordinary people at work and expert insight and advice from some of today’s leading voices on faith and work, viewers will discover that vocation or calling is about much more than a paid job.


     


    This show is presented by Rowman & Littlefield, debuting Life Lessons from Family Vacations on June 7th, 2015. Order today at www.amazon.com or www.rowman.com.

    Episcopacy 101 - dispelling the misconceptions

    in Religion

    We are going to deal with some misconceptions about the episcopacy and the apostleship so that there can be some clear udnerstanding of what the scripture says about both.

    - Does the work precede consecration or come after consecration?  1st Tim 3:1

    - The same man who wrote Timothy writes Ephesians and book books are address to Timothy in Ephesus...

    - The work of the Bishop according to Acts 20:28 is to pastor the Church.

    - Bishop according to Scripture is an ascension gift

    and so much more

    Children of Joshua- New American Revolution

    in Current Events

    According to Bibical citation, Joshua was a major figure in the events of the Exodus and was charged by Moses with selecting and commanding a militia group for their first battle after exiting Egypt. Joshua was one of twelve Israeli men sent by Moses to explore the land of Canaan (Numbers 13:1-16), then after the death of Moses, he led the Israelite tribes in the conquest of Canaan and allocated the land to the tribes. God appointed Joshua to succeed Moses as leader of the Israelites along with giving him a blessing of invincibility during his lifetime (Joshua 1:5).


    Young people born in the 1990’s and beyond have been dubbed: “The X generation”, The Millenniums”, The Lost Generation” by the media. But, in Black American communities, young people, aged 16 to 30, who are attentive to current event, seeing marked aggression toward Black males coupled with judicial indifference, are calling themselves the “Joshua Generation”. When I first heard this, I did not understand this reference. Out of curiosity, I started to talk to scholarly people, listen to wise men and women in lecture settings and talked directly to young adults aged 16 to 30. I had my eyes opened to “thinking” that I had not come upon on my own.


    Young people are satiated with false promises and overt lies about justice, “leveled playing fields” and false promises about "getting an education” and finding a good job. There is a “disbelief” in American public education citing how staying in school no longer means getting a high school diploma. And going to college means being enslaved by long-term debt without prospects of a career or vocation. Distrust, unrest and “brain-washing” of their late ancestors, have given rise to Black American youth who are ready to exact change. “Respect is earned”, they told me, and “power is taken”.
