Contrary to popular opinions, a spiritual “calling” is not a vocation … is not a livelihood! Therefore, no one can choose to become a pastor, prophet, apostle, evangelist, Bible teacher, and so forth! That’s right. Even though numerous people have chosen, and continue to choose, to attend a Bible College, Divinity School, or Theological Seminary, to earn degrees in various religious studies so that they can make a good living off of serving the Lord, according to the Holy Bible, pastor, apostle, prophet, evangelist, Bible teacher, and so on, are NOT vocations … they are NOT CAREERS, but rather they are special spiritual gifts!
The “church” is the globally recognized spiritual body of loving, caring, born again, saved believers in Christ over whom Christ is the Head and the Lord, which gives Him the authority and the power to add new believers daily to His spiritual body of “called out” Christians who have assembled in the public and private places located throughout this entire world.
