Communion - Elders Controlling - Lessons from Job

Good stuff by Derek Thomas.

"By the secret virtue of the Holy Spirit life is infused into us from the substance of Christ's flesh."
John Calvin.

"Too often, elders and pastors think in terms of 'control' rather than 'enabling,' thereby stifling vision."

Lessons from the book of Job: "We have no right or entitlement to understanding why trials come our way.... Some counseling methods are inept.  Job's friends talked a great deal, and though what they said was often true, the context was entirely misunderstood and therefore the counsel utterly irrelevant or wrong."
