God has gifted all His called-out ones, expecting them to use those gifts with the pillars of godly wisdom for the edification of the Body of Christ.
If we govern ourselves, God will take care of us. Government of any kind will not work unless people govern their own nature. Self-control enables us to show love.
The ministry's authority consists of teaching, edifying, and equipping the members for sainthood, but not to wield dictatorial power over their lives.
Only those who are governable will be allowed to govern with God. No government will work without each individual submitting in his area of responsibility.
Should we teach our children or should we allow the church to do that? Do youth programs have a positive impact? Do they keep youth them in the church?
