ch41 The marks of a bad minister

Posted by & filed under .

In this tract we examine the biblical picture of a true minister of God contrasted with what the Bible pictures as evil, wicked, or bad ministers. Mat 7:20-24 presents us with supposed ministers of God which in judgment day, Christ identicates they are not even saved, and their characteristic marks are what this tract focuses on.

ch38 Recognizing a good pastor

Posted by & filed under .

In this tract we chat with you about God’s concept of the “good pastor”. We contrast the good pastor against the wicked Pharisees of Jesus’ time, marking what is different between the “thief and robber” and the good pastor. His entry among the flock is legitimate. His success is of God, not from his own astuteness and trickery. His sheep follow him because he is the living local example of Christ closest to the sheep. He leads by personal example.
