Articles That Matter

A world-famous chemist tells the truth: there’s no scientist alive today who understands macroevolution — This is a wonderful article and very helpful for those of us who are not scientists. Professors James M. Tour also gives a wonderful testimony in this video below. He is speaking on nano technology and shares how he came to know Christ.

The only thing I didn’t like about the entire video, was one speaker got up and tried to encourage people to just “try” Jesus. I know that he meant well. But Jesus is not someone or something you “try” as if it was the latest fad.

Jesus is LORD and Second Person of the Trinity. We need to be upfront with people about who He is and not present Him less than He is. Otherwise, the entire video is really good. I mopped the floor while listening to it and plan to listen to again in the coming weeks. Take the time to listen, you will be encouraged in your Christian faith.

Statistics for Pastors — This one I can truly relate to on many of these statistics. Pastoral Care Inc., has compiled statistics for those in ministry and it is quite shocking. Here are just a few:

  •  90% of the pastors report working between 55 to75 hours per week.

  • 80% believe pastoral ministry has negatively affected their families. Many pastor’s children do not attend church now because of what the church has done to their parents.

  • 95% of pastors do not regularly pray with their spouses.

  • 33% state that being in the ministry is an outright hazard to their family.

    1. Yes, and given these statistics, it makes me wonder that anyone would want to go into the pastoral ministry at all. If it wasn’t for that darn calling… 🙂
