Pr. Harrison goes on a Mercy Journey to the seminaries. He advises go to seminary, of course. He says that 300 pastors will be retiring or semi-retiring per year soon. Of course, he's only interested in "people person" natural born leader-type pastors. Intellectual types whose main interest in life is finding out the truth, testing the spirits, and then teaching it fearlessly, need not apply:http://mercyjourney.blogspot.com/2011/04/go-to-seminary.html?spref=fbIf you...love the bible and love people, if you have the nascent tools to be a leader...
concordiarocks, I think Luther sums it up well:"It is a faithful saying that Christ has accomplished everything, has removed sin and overcome every enemy, so that through Him we are lords over all things. But the treasure lies yet in one pile; it is not yet distributed nor invested. Consequently, if we are to possess it, the Holy Spirit must come and teach our hearts to believe and say: I, too, am one of those who are to have this treasure. When we feel that God has thus helped us and given the treasure to us, everything goes well, and it cannot be otherwise than that man's heart rejoices in God and lifts itself up, saying: Dear Father, if it is Thy will to show toward me such great love and faithfulness, which I cannot fully fathom, then will I also love Thee with all my heart and be joyful, and cheerfully do what pleases Thee. Thus, the heart does not now look at God with evil eyes, does not imagine He will cast us into hell, as it did before the Holy Spirit came...."- Sermons of Martin Luther, 8 vols., ed., John Nicholas Lenker, Grand Rapids: Baker Book House, 1983, III, p. 279. Pentecost Sunday. John 14:23-31
