Biblical Basis of Ministry

Biblical basis of ministry – what foundation do we rest on?

In the 07/11/2004 newsletter, I made what I considered to be an innocuous request. I requested American subscribers to contact their senators in favor of the Federal Marriage Amendment. This legally defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman. I was surprised by some of the responses that I received.

Among other responses, I received an e-mail from someone active in the homosexual lifestyle. This person said “I am a child of God.” who in addition to various insults informed me that “God didn’t write the bible. Man did.”

Now, this article isn’t to defend myself¬†nor argue against either gay marriage or homosexuality. I am taking this opportunity to publicly declare where the “ministry” of this site is derived from. Unlike the writer, I believe that “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction unto righteousness. (II Timothy 3:16) I believe in the Bible as God’s holy, infallible, unchanging, eternal Word. My salvation depends on Jesus Christ, the Messiah. I agree with the Apostle’s Creed. I do not agree with removing any part of God’s Word that I don’t like, don’t agree with, or makes me uneasy. Indeed, those are the parts that I need to look at the more closely¬†since God is likely trying to convict me of something.

This does not mean that anyone who does not believe these things is unwelcome. I have received e-mails from Christians, professing Christians, Jewish people, atheists, agnostics, etc. Everyone is welcome; just be aware of the Biblical worldview of the author and editor of this site. Also, please be aware of the purpose of this site: to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, to preach the good news via the medium of clowning, and to edify the body of believers.
