Leadership lesson for the day: A pastor is at his best when he is activity mentoring the next generation of church leaders. Young preachers you need to understand that it is not about carrying their coats, picking up their dry cleaning; nor is it about standing outside the restroom door while they relieve themselves. Mentoring is an art and a science! The mentor pastor helps the mentee/young preacher spot their weakness and turns them into strengths! They help the mentee/young preacher see their own blind spots and learn to navigate them so that they can avoid the pit falls of ministry. Mentors assist the mentee/young preacher reach their goals and not keep under their thumb. We all need a mentor, but we must pick our mentor wisely. Pray and ask God to lead you to a pastor that understands the mentor/mentee relationship and submit to the process.

Grace & Peace Pastor Sweet. Dr. Watson left BPN a while ago due to the nonsense found within the debates. I was in contact with him recently though, and he's doing just fine. I'll tell him you asked for him when next I speak with him.

How have you been?

Pastor Sweet, thank you for that blog on the Church Canon. Unfortunately, you did not leave a chance for a response to your blog, be it for or against.

Bless you Pastor Sweet, I'm glad you ask:
The role of apostolic succession in preserving true doctrine is illustrated in the Bible. To make sure that the apostles’ teachings would be passed down after the deaths of the apostles, Paul told Timothy, "[W]hat you have heard from me before many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also" (2 Tim. 2:2). In this passage he refers to the first three generations of apostolic succession—his own generation, Timothy’s generation, and the generation Timothy will teach.

The Church Fathers, who were links in that chain of succession, regularly appealed to apostolic succession as a test for whether Catholics or heretics had correct doctrine. This was necessary because heretics simply put their own interpretations, even bizarre ones, on Scripture. Clearly, something other than Scripture had to be used as an ultimate test of doctrine in these cases.

Thus the early Church historian J. N. D. Kelly, a Protestant, writes, "[W]here in practice was [the] apostolic testimony or tradition to be found? . . . The most obvious answer was that the apostles had committed it orally to the Church, where it had been handed down from generation to generation. . . . Unlike the alleged secret tradition of the Gnostics, it was entirely public and open, having been entrusted by the apostles to their successors, and by these in turn to those who followed them, and was visible in the Church for all who cared to look for it" (Early Christian Doctrines, 37).

For the early Fathers, "the identity of the oral tradition with the original revelation is guaranteed by the unbroken succession of bishops in the great sees going back lineally to the apostles. . . . [A]n additional safeguard is supplied by the Holy Spirit, for the message committed was to the Church, and the Church is the home of the Spirit. Indeed, the Church’s bishops are . . . Spirit-endowed men who have been vouchsafed ‘an infallible charism of truth’"

How to Resist Temptation

Posted on May 12, 2011 at 11:01am 0 Comments

Over the past couple weeks we’ve learned that God will give us the wisdom to withstand the trials that we face along the journey toward maturity. Now we come to learning how to handle the spiritual-death-dealing process of temptation. The mature Christian is patient in trial. But we must understand that sometimes the trials we face on the inside are testing on the outside, and sometimes the testing on the outside become temptation on the inside. In light of all that we’ve learned about…


Why the Black Church needs Theologians

Posted on May 12, 2011 at 11:00am 0 Comments

I have been preaching now for over 20 years and a lot has happen in that time that has been both a benefit and a

detriment to the church. One such thing is the advancement of televangelists, next is the growing refit in the educational levels between the black pulpit and pew. This has lead me to believe that the Black church is in danger for

becoming an endanger spices, becoming over run with false teaching and having no real way to work through it. If my observations are correct…

Should Christians Celebrate Christmas?

Posted on November 16, 2009 at 8:30am 0 Comments


"Should Christians celebrate Christmas?" or, "How should a Christian celebrate Christmas?" These are questions of concern for many sincere believers. In fact, many believers dislike the season and have refused to celebrate it at all. A number of reasons are given, and while I might agree with some of their concerns and some of the reasons offered against the observance of Christmas, I would not necessarily agree with their conclusions.

One day I happened to catch a TV… Continue
