The Authorities

In a world where many are turned off by the government, it's a bit difficult to take Paul's words to heart when he tells us to respect those in authority. But then again, Paul and other Christians spent plenty of time in jail because of these authorities, which is not something that should happen to someone who respects authority. So what's going on here? Jamin explores this question.

The Church Body

So often we turn spiritual things over to the pastor, because we pay them to do that, right? Not exactly. The pastor's job is actually to equip the saints for ministry. Paul tells us we are a body and each of us are gifted differently in that respect. Jamin explores that further and shows us that we all must work together and not just expect those with ministerial titles to do it themselves.
