Sharing Thoughts On Those Who Sit In Judgment of Others In Ministry

Heavenly Father we love you and praise You. We thank You for the blessings you have bestowed upon us and for the boldness that Your grace brings into our lives. By Your grace at work within each of us, we can think, pray, speak, and act in godly boldness for Your glory, Heavenly Father grant us we pray a boldness that is confident, but not arrogant; daring but not reckless; uncompromising but not harsh; unrelenting but not insensitive; fearless but not un-loving. Amen

Matthew 7:15 Many have come preaching Christ for personal gain. Some have come to devour the very people they are trying to reach, all in the name of Jesus. Jesus warned us, Don't let anyone stop you from following your calling.

Chaplain Fellowship over the years has recruited chaplains from every state in our great nation. They are reaching thousands of people every day who are in need. CFMI members consist of high school drop outs, high school graduates and college graduates, people from all walks of life. We all have spiritual gifts and we apply those gifts in accordance with our abilities. It takes all of us, Jesus recruited his followers from many different backgrounds, did He not say? we have to be all things to all people.

Galatians 6:4- You should each judge your own conduct. If it is good, then you can be proud of what you yourself have done, without having to compare it with what someone else has done.

Please remember one simple yet very important principle! Anyone no matter who they are, or what position they hold in the church, or the ministry does not have the right to, belittle anyone, degrade anyone, talk down to anyone, or start gossip about anyone, those who do so are false prophets, "2 Corinthians. 11:13-15". Those who truly do have the love of Jesus Christ in their hearts will do EVERYTHING THEY CAN to help those called into ministry, not hinder them.

2 Corinthians. 11:13-15 For such [are] FALSE apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore [it is] no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

PLEASE NOTE: When I decided to put this page here I had intended to write my own humble thoughts and heart breaks from years of experience, and from years of hearing horror stories from thousands of people. Then I realized what Paul had already written was exactly how I felt about this subject. So even though Paul wrote the following, it is how I also feel!

What Did Paul Say On This Subject: 2 Corinthians 11:1-15  I hope you will put up with a little more of my foolishness. Please bear with me. For I am jealous for you with the jealousy of God himself. I promised you as a pure bride to one husband—Christ. But I fear that somehow your pure and undivided devotion to Christ will be corrupted, just as Eve was deceived by the cunning ways of the serpent. You happily put up with whatever anyone tells you, even if they preach a different Jesus than the one we preach, or a different kind of Spirit than the one you received, or a different kind of gospel than the one you believed.

But I don’t consider myself inferior in any way to these “super apostles” who teach such things. I may be unskilled as a speaker, but I’m not lacking in knowledge. We have made this clear to you in every possible way. Was I wrong when I humbled myself and honored you by preaching God’s Good News to you without expecting anything in return? I “robbed” other churches by accepting their contributions so I could serve you at no cost. And when I was with you and didn’t have enough to live on, I did not become a financial burden to anyone. For the brothers who came from Macedonia brought me all that I needed. I have never been a burden to you, and I never will be. As surely as the truth of Christ is in me, no one in all of Greece will ever stop me from boasting about this. Why? Because I don’t love you? God knows that I do.

But I will continue doing what I have always done. This will undercut those who are looking for an opportunity to boast that their work is just like ours. These people are false apostles. They are deceitful workers who disguise themselves as apostles of Christ. But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no wonder that his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. In the end they will get the punishment their wicked deeds deserve.

1 Corinthians 9: 1-27 Am I not free? Am I not an apostle? Have I not seen Jesus our Lord? Are you not the result of my work in the Lord? Even though I may not be an apostle to others, surely I am to you! For you are the seal of my apostleship in the Lord. This is my defense to those who sit in judgment on me. Don’t we have the right to food and drink? Don’t we have the right to take a believing wife along with us, as do the other apostles and the Lord’s brothers and Cephasa? Or is it only I and Barnabas who must work for a living?

Who serves as a soldier at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat of its grapes? Who tends a flock and does not drink of the milk? Do I say this merely from a human point of view? does not the Law say the same thing? For it is written in the Law of Moses: “Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain.” Is it about oxen that God is concerned? Surely he says this for us, doesn’t he? Yes, this was written for us, because when the plowman plows and the thresher threshes, they ought to do so in the hope of sharing in the harvest. If we have sown spiritual seed among you, is it too much if we reap a material harvest from you? If others have this right of support from you, shouldn’t we have it all the more?

But we did not use this right. On the contrary, we put up with anything rather than hinder the gospel of Christ. Don’t you know that those who work in the temple get their food from the temple, and those who serve at the altar share in what is offered on the altar? In the same way, the Lord has commanded that those who preach the gospel should receive their living from the gospel.

But I have not used any of these rights. And I am not writing this in the hope that you will do such things for me. I would rather die than have anyone deprive me of this boast. Yet when I preach the gospel, I cannot boast, for I am compelled to preach. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel! If I preach voluntarily, I have a reward; if not voluntarily, I am simply discharging the trust committed to me. What then is my reward? Just this: that in preaching the gospel I may offer it free of charge, and so not make use of my rights in preaching it.

Though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law), so as to win those not having the law. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.

Chaplain Fellowship Ministries is totally funded by the blessings received from members and the processing of documents for members. Folks all donations no matter how small are a blessing and will help assure that Chaplain Fellowship ministries will remain stable. With the Lords' guidance, blessings and grace our members are making a difference in the lives of thousands of people every day worldwide. Bless you and thank you for your time and your interest in Chaplain Fellowship Ministries. Chaplain Gibson

Matthew 11:28-30 Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke [is] easy, and my burden is light.
