Thoughtfully researched and humbly written, Mark blends both Biblical insight and many years of pastoral experience to bring us this valuable book! Grab a copy at www. I would like very much to have a dialogue with you about this topic, because I do not agree with your position. There are to many loose ends.
Is it not true that there are at lease several qualifications to one becoming an apostle in the official sense? Second, an apostle had to be specifically selected by the Lord or the Holy Spirit Matthew ; Mark ; Luke ; Acts ;; ,21; Thanks for commenting. I will try to reach you again but am under another deadline at the moment. God bless you, Mark. Please realize that modern day apostles are not the same as the 12 apostles of the Lamb mentioned in Rev Modern day apostles are ascension-gift apostles Eph who are appointed by Jesus after His resurrection and ascension into heaven where He now sits as Head over His church.
How long will these apostles exist? Until we all attain to the unity of the faith and the full measure of the stature maturity of Christ. Further, of the perhaps 25 apostles mentioned in the NT, not all could have seen the Lord in physical form. For instance, the young Timothy was probably not even born by the time Christ was crucified. This is not only interesting and relevant, but speaks to the work of God through Jesus his Beloved son; that salvation is not finished.
All of us are spirit inspired and working in Christ. They provide what is needed for the lambs and sheep through the lambs and sheep, as imperfect as they may be at times. He leads it, Jesus leads those who follow, so that God may be All in All. A small point here, that Satan never stops being intelligent towards us, albeit never in a way for our salvation this is no compliment , yet to destroy us.

Apostles and ministers, teachers of the Lord and King, how wonderful. No soul who comes to the Lord with a heart of reconciliation, and repentance, humbleness and seeking his grace, will find an empty hand. Therefore, the body of Christ may be composed of those who find faith and salvation through modern day Apostles and ministers, Catholic priests, Bishops and Cardinals, Evangelists, Baptists, And so on, all these pathways are neither completely right or wrong.
They lead to the one true path, Jesus Christ. The Pathway. This pathway is found in those who seek it, however the Lord God decides how he will imbue his servants, and with what ministry. It is not up to us to decide this, but it is up to us to follow the pathway that he has called us for, regardless of what others may think. What a fantastic topic. Blessings to all!!
