Tea, Laborers, and Fields That Are Ripe

April 24, 2015

Hey friends:
Did you know that some of the highest quality tea in the world is grown in Kenya? To make such quality tea, they harvest only the bud and top leaf from each tea plant. For that reason the leaves must be harvested by hand, one at a time. Thousands of people can be seen across the seemingly endless hillside fields, carefully picking the leaves one by one by one. Many of the people at our new Harvest Bible Chapel in Limuru, Kenya (20 miles outside of Nairobi), work in these tea fields.

That reminds me of the way we are commanded to work the field of souls. Jesus said, “The Harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few. Pray therefore the Lord of the Harvest that He would send out laborers into the fields” (Matthew 9:37-38). In John 4:35, Jesus also said that those ‘fields’ are ripe for harvest! It was that exact passage which led to the establishment of our church in 1988. Now, by God’s grace in answer to our prayers, those verses are coming literally true before our eyes.  Read More

Elder Rule Church Government is From Satan, Too

April 16, 2015

Back in the spring of 2011, I made the regrettable decision to publish a blog post entitled, “Congregational Government is From Satan.” Initially the post was inflammatory to get attention, but in the end it was judged as unbalanced and therefore unfair. In that sense, the danger of hyperbole was realized. That post was removed long ago, but its negative impact continues to linger. This post is for the purpose of apologizing and explaining how I have come to regret it. Read More
