Strong Sermon! This message brings forth a serious and relatively non-discussed topic -- the reason for and the justification of various ministries, which are most abundant in our country. This is a topic I've never considered before, but now will give it more thought. There were good point brought out that we should serious thought. Thank you for this "new" topic for me.

Great Sermon! Thanks Pastor Thompson for this. I passed your b-day wishes on to A N Martin. I am thankful you talked about this subject. One subject that is even more controversial is the whole idea of a "music ministry." I have owned the albums of Steve Green, Shai Lynne and others. I am edified by them. But I am still troubled when we say that this is the "ministry" God has given them. Is it a church office? Are they under oversight? I am just not sure I can imagine such a person in front of the church followed by the preaching of Gilbert Tennant, or Samuel Davies. I would be willing to be corrected, but it appears more pragmatic than Scriptural. By the way, this is the first message I have ever heard from you. I have known of the church there since James White visited in 2008.
