One response to “apostolic

  1. Apostolic is one of those terms that get banded about far too easily by the more independently minded churches.

    I am convinced that “apostolic” should only mean “pertaining to the Apostles” and as such is not something that can be applied to modern evangelists and preachers.

    Once we get on to the slippery slope of referring to modern missionaries as performing an “apostolic” ministry we open the door to all forms of abuse. Personally I think a good deal more people need to remember that Jesus never once called anyone to leadership, but to followship (not a typo).
