Jack Brooks has a great piece on the plague—and that’s not too strong a word at all—of every Tom, Dick, and Benny jumping up and claiming to have “an anointed ministry of God”, simply because he/she deems it to be so and can self-publish the latest “Christian classic” revealing some hitherto unrevealed “truth” of God:
I recently learned that a woman with whom I am connected via a ministry group in which we both participate is going church to church “teaching Bible” but refuses to attend church WITH her husband, as she has been offended by the folks at the church he attends. So they go to two different churches.
