A new story from Theocast - Reformed Theology


And this and that <Speech_Male> and it's those <Speech_Male> men are <Speech_Male> sitting on that board <Speech_Male> not because they're <Speech_Male> going to leave that board <Speech_Male> and then go carry a burden <Speech_Male> and shepherd and <Speech_Male> weep and administrate <Speech_Male> the gospel <Speech_Male> to those. Who need <Speech_Male> they sit on that board. <Speech_Male> Because they're good at making <Speech_Male> financial and <Speech_Male> business decisions. <Speech_Male> And i'm sorry <Speech_Male> but <Speech_Male> when we when <Speech_Male> we do elder <Speech_Male> training it <Speech_Male> needs to be <Speech_Male> getting them prepared <Speech_Male> to be able to administrate <Speech_Male> god's word <Speech_Male> and carry <Speech_Male> the sheep <Speech_Male> as they need <Speech_Male> to be helped <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> I don't care how successful <Speech_Male> you are at <Speech_Male> a businessman. <SpeakerChange> That <Speech_Male> doesn't mean you're a good elder. <Speech_Male> Yeah well. <Speech_Male> I mean if the <Speech_Male> ministry of the elders <Speech_Male> is the ministry <Speech_Male> of the word in prayer <Speech_Male> and they're <Speech_Male> right <Speech_Male> by word <Speech_Male> prayer oversight <Speech_Male> shepherding. That's what we <Speech_Male> do so if those <Speech_Male> things don't <Speech_Male> characterize your elders <Speech_Male> meetings. I <Speech_Male> do think something is wrong. <Speech_Male> Like if <Speech_Male> if it's not word <Speech_Male> stuff <Speech_Male> if it's not a <Speech_Male> lot of prayer and <Speech_Male> i'm not trying to sound pipe <Speech_Male> theistic and saying that <Speech_Male> that if we're not <Speech_Male> praying in <Speech_Male> a four our people for <Speech_Male> our church in our elders <Speech_Male> meetings what are we doing. <Speech_Male> And then if <Speech_Male> we're not talking about <Speech_Male> issues of <Speech_Male> oversight <Speech_Male> and shepherding whether that's <Speech_Male> individual members <Speech_Male> individual sheet <Speech_Male> that we're talking about <Speech_Male> because we're concerned <Speech_Male> you know and we're trying <Speech_Male> to pass through <Speech_Male> them and we're updating each <Speech_Male> other and praying for those <Speech_Male> people or whether <Speech_Male> we're just talking about like <Speech_Male> directions of the church <Speech_Male> like <Speech_Male> what does this look like <Speech_Male> for us to herald <Speech_Male> christ and love each <Speech_Male> other. And how <Speech_Male> can we do this in <Speech_Male> effective ways <Speech_Music_Male> to be fruitful <Speech_Music_Male> in our communities. <Speech_Music_Male> You know if that's <Speech_Male> not the kind of stuff we're <Speech_Male> talking about if it's always <Speech_Male> like you're saying <Speech_Male> john of course you gotta talk <Speech_Male> about business <Speech_Male> but if that's really <Speech_Male> what. The elders meetings <Speech_Male> are. I think <Speech_Male> that's indicative of a problem <Speech_Music_Male> agree. Yep <Speech_Music_Male> yep yeah and blue <Speech_Male> agreed. <Speech_Male> Well what a great <Speech_Male> conversation. <Speech_Male> I know we could say <Speech_Male> a lot more but we <Speech_Male> have got <Speech_Male> to get to work on <Speech_Male> other things and <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> I know we <Speech_Male> say this all the time. <Speech_Male> But i hope you understand <Speech_Male> that <Speech_Male> as the cast grows. <Speech_Male> It only grows <Speech_Male> because of <Speech_Male> what you guys <Speech_Male> are doing. It is true <Speech_Male> that this it <Speech_Male> costs money. It costs <Speech_Male> money to get the stuff <Speech_Male> done and <Speech_Male> the more a <Speech_Male> support that we get <Speech_Male> the ongoing support <Speech_Male> that we get the more <Speech_Male> we can do. So we're <Speech_Male> excited. I'll i'll even <Speech_Male> tell you guys this year because your <Speech_Male> family. We have a new <Speech_Male> logo coming <Speech_Male> and we have <Speech_Male> some new books coming. <Speech_Male> Hopefully soon <Speech_Male> we're gonna rebranding <SpeakerChange> some <Speech_Music_Male> of our other end all of our <Speech_Male> yet primers. <Speech_Male> They're going to be called something <Speech_Male> different. That's right <Speech_Male> so <Speech_Male> we're <SpeakerChange> thankful <Silence> the the <Speech_Male> <Silence> the primary <SpeakerChange> mission <Speech_Male> of <Speech_Male> separate from onda <Speech_Male> is that <Speech_Music_Male> you would find a <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> community to <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> be encouraged <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> by and <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> ultimately you <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> would find yourself in a <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> church and <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> be able to then take <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> what you've learned and <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> build up that hastert <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> and build up that <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> church that they <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> might be encouraged <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> to continue the mission <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> that's been given to horrible <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> churches so hopefully <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> you understand <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> that.
