When Ministries are Hijacked
It is distressing to hear negative reports about ministries, missions and churches, which once were such powerhouses for the fulfilment of the Great Commission. There are many warnings in Scripture against false prophets, false teachers and false shepherds. What is happening to so many denominations worldwide? Why do churches split? To what extent are we dealing with important doctrinal issues and how often is it not personality clashes, ambitions, greed and envy, behind the schisms? What can we learn from the Bible concerning ministries which go off the rails? What can we learn from history? What can we practically do in our time, to preserve the legacy and effectiveness of faithful ministries? How can we be more effective stewards of the precious resources that have been entrusted to us?
“Moreover it is required in stewards that one be found faithful.”
1 Corinthians 4:2
