Inconsistency is so liberating 4

Perry Noble now:

Jesus addressed seven different churches in Revelation 2-3…and He addressed each one of them differently! He didn’t say, “here is an org chart for all of you guys, here are some titles for key staff members and here are some books to read on leadership development…”

Perry Noble then:

Hands down…it is one of THE TOP FIVE LEADERSHIP BOOKS I’VE EVER READ! Seriously! (You can order it here…right now!!!)

Seriously, this book is amazing…get it…read it…enough said.

    Love the “now” quote.

    At least technically true regarding Jesus’ instruction to the churches in Revelation 2-3, Ace’s comment about “titles for key staff members” is outright hysterical – and I’d be laughing if it weren’t so sad, that a pastor of church (I wonder where he found that title), doesn’t know the titles of key staff members for a church.

    This must be some special Bible that Ace carries around to actually type these comments into his blog for the world to see. My Bible (which I realize is clearly very different than his) contains: Acts 15:2-4; Acts 20:28; 1 Timothy 3:1-10; 1 Timothy 4:14; Titus 1:5-14; 1 Peter 5:1-2, where numerous authors discuss various roles for proper oversight of a congregation. And I’m confident I’ve missed many more than these.

    Since he’s clearly missing portions of it, think I should send him a copy of my Bible?

    @TommyF: Hang onto it – you need your Bible as much I need mine and Perry needs his. What he and we need to do is prayerfully, thoughtfully and diligently READ them. A man of the Word must be a man OF THE Word. Saturated in it. Able to rightly divide it. Not proof-text it into irrelevance. If he’s not reading his, I doubt he’ll read yours – what with all those extra verses and words and definitions.

    Twit, He’s not getting MY Bible. I’m not that generous. He’s getting one like it. Sorry I didn’t make that clear.
