PARADIGMS IN ACTS -- FOR THE SPIRIT-LED CHURCH by Frederick W. Baltz
By Frederick W. Baltz
The Fall Theological Conference of WordAlone was held Nov. 11-13 at White Bear Lake, MN. One of the featured presenters was Dr. Frederick Baltz, a member of the WordAlone Board of Directors.
Using the Book of Acts as a pattern, Fred
sets forth several paradigms which prevailed in the early church, and which should still obtain in the church today.
One of these paradigms is enunciated in Acts 6: 1-4.
In response to a complaint, the 'Twelve' summoned the believers, and said to them: "It is not right that we should give up preaching the Word of God to serve tables."
In this particular section, Fred
contends that one of the major faults of the church today is that we have replaced the primary duty of 'preaching the Word' (Evangelism) with an almost obsessive emphasis on socio-political concerns (waiting on tables).
Dr. Frederick W. Baltz , pastor of St. Matthews Lutheran Church, Galena, IL, and a member of the Word Alone Board of Directors, has posted an article on the Word Alone website that details this encouraging news.
