The Devil Wants Your Pastor(s) to Do All the Work in Church: Burying Gifts and Ignoring God-Given Tasks

There is a common belief within many churches today, and it is this: “The pastor (or pastors) must do all or most of the work, otherwise, what are we paying him (them) for?” This notion, however, is not from the Bible, but is from the devil and will, if continually upheld, keep many of our Read more about The Devil Wants Your Pastor(s) to Do All the Work in Church: Burying Gifts and Ignoring God-Given Tasks[…]
