Minister of the Church

"Feed my sheep!" Before Jesus was able to provide the people with loaves and fishes in Mark 6:39 He "commanded" His disciples to "make" the people sit down in companies upon companies in divisions and "ranks" of "in fifties and hundreds". Christ also told His disciples not to be like the rulers and princes of the Gentiles who provided benefits by exercising authority one over the other.
Everyone who got the Baptism of Christ was "put out" of the Jewish synagogue system which was also composed of ten families through which they provided welfare with the "Corban" of the people.
Your ministers should not be rulers but servants because Christ came to serve. Every man should be led by the Holy Spirit. The minister is supposed to be serving by making the people voluntarily organize themselves in Companies of tens, fifties and hundreds, and thousands so that people may love one another into the practice of Pure Religion.

MINISTER

The noun minister in the testaments means servant.

In the Church there are two types of altars, Clay and Stone.[1]

These terms like altars of stones or earth are metaphors for elements of a system by which men may remain free souls under God the Father in Heaven with no other gods before them.

While reading the Old Testament we may believe that we are being told to pile up stones and kill sheep and oxen as if by doing so we will create the loyalty and honor required to maintain and protect a free society. The truth is much simpler and far more practical once we understand the Sophistry of false teachers.

We know the Pharisees had strayed from the teachings of Moses. We know that Jesus, as the Christ came preaching the Kingdom of God at hand and appointed that Kingdom to His titular servants.

Have Modern Christians and their ministers also been led astray into a state of apostasy and under a strong delusion?

Moses and Christ were in agreement.[2]

Every man is an altar of earth. The Hebrew word for earth when talking about altars of earth is "adamah". We are the Adamah. We are all sons of Adam. Each man plays his part in the kingdom of God by being a conduit for the sacrifices of his family in the practice of "pure religion".

If the ministers called out by God the Father will gather the people in companies as Jesus "commanded" in Mark 6:39 and "make" them sit down in companies upon companies in divisions and "ranks" of "in fifties and hundreds so that they may love one another in the practice of Pure Religion the Holy Spirit will come and bless His peculiar people.


Christ appointed His ministers to do a job and provide the services of Pure Religion through charitable practices, freely giving what was freely received like the Levites who were the Church in the Wilderness. They were public servants of a free government of, for, and by the virtue of the people and the ministries of His Church. Providing welfare through the state where men may call themselves benefactors creates a social compact with a corporate body that exercises authority which makes the word of God to none effect and snares the people as surety for debt. They gave up personal wealth being "called out" and relied upon charity. They were not mendicant which would be contrary to the early Church. They were to be in one accord, One Body, as the true Church. 1000 years later in the days of Lady Godiva the Church would look to the Benefactors who exercise authority and the Fathers of the earth becoming entangled in the elements of the world. It is time to repent!
  • "Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, [and] to keep himself unspotted from the world." James 1:27

The Elder of each family chooses how his family is to serve his congregation and the whole community.

Religion is the performance of our duty to God and our fellow man. Everyone in the kingdom or seeking the kingdom must realize that they are ministers to each other. Ministers of the Kingdom are those who gather together to facilitate that ministry on a national and world-wide basis.[3]

The stone altars are also men, lively stones. The living ministers of the Church chosen by men, and ordained of God are the living altars of stone of the kingdom[4]. They are titular leaders and benefactors who do not exercise authority over the contributing of the people but minister their offerings for the good of those they serve with Freewill offerings in a system of Daily ministration according to the Perfect law of liberty.

The church is an alternative government form[5] based on "the perfect law of liberty" composed of families in congregations, and ordained ministers who are servants of servants facilitating a system of welfare through faith, hope, and charity that sets men free.

It is the mission of His Holy Church to teach The Way of Christ and document the boundaries of the Church, congregations, and the families as a witness of the the world of the Kingdom of God at hand.

Why Minister

The predominant form of government throughout history has been based on voluntary Networks often called the tens, hundreds, and thousands. We must not only ask, "Why ministers?", but also must ask, "What kind of ministers should we be seeking?" Most modern Christians have a distorted view of religion. They also have a false view of what the role of a minister is meant to be.

Ministers are first servants of God but also servants of the people. The Ministers of Christ are forbidden to exercise authority one over the other and therefore they are titular leaders like those of the early Church were to aid the people in the practice of Pure Religion according to The Way of Christ. While they functioned as the pure Republics of more ancient history and were "one form of government" the leaders of the people were titular, they did not rule or the bodies and minds of the people.

Ministers of the people are recognized and accepted by the witness of the people.
Ministers of the Church should then:
  • Come together to obey what Christ commanded according to the will of the Father,
  • Come together to serve others through love and just not yourself,
  • Come together to propagate Christ's doctrines and ordinances,
  • Come together in hope that the people "might be saved".

They should be assisting in the Corban of Christ and aiding the people in their duty of Pure Religion like the early Church who were attending to the Weightier matters as Christ warned.

They should be making it possible for the people of faith who love one another not to have to depend upon any minister of the world who exercises authority one over the other.

Even Polybius warned the people of their "appetite for benefits and the habit of receiving them by way of a rule of force". John the Baptist said the same things encouraging charity among those who received his Baptism.

You cannot covet the property of others to provide your livelihood or you and your society will "degenerate again into perfect savages and find once more a master and monarch."

Authoritarian States use force and violence to become the Benefactors of the people. They force one class of citizen to provide for another. Proverbs 23 warned and Christ forbid that type of government.

Their solution was to not pray to the Fathers of the earth for their free bread and benefits which was a snare, but to set the table of the Lord through the Eucharist of Christ which was a daily ministration established by His Church through faith, hope, charity and the perfect law of liberty.

The same is true of ministers who are not rulers over the faith of true believers.

  • "Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand." 2 Corinthians 1:24

Many modern doctrines of Churches try to dictate tenets of faith based on private interpretation rather than the actual direct doctrines of Jesus. The true minister of Christ only facilitates the people's practice of Pure Religion by connecting them in a kingdom of God and His righteousness.

The ministers of God are not rulers nor spiritual gurus nor their comforters. Every man should be led by the Holy Spirit.

In Mark 6:39 Christ commanded His called out disciples to make the people organize themselves in small "companies"[6] which are the elders of ten families. Those elders choose a minister, usually another elder. Those elder ministers gather in a congregation of elders or Deacons in "ranks".[7]

A rank of fifty would be 5 "companies" of 10 families which would add up to fifty families.

Two "ranks" of fifties would be a hundred families or 10 "companies" of elders of families which would be 10 groups of 10 families.

This practical network of free assemblies is The Way to practice pure religion in faith, hope and charity according to the perfect law of liberty as free souls under God.

Can the state compel you to accept someone as your "religious" minister?
Trey Gowdy and the supreme court says the government cannot force you to accept a religious minister. Time 5:05 https://youtu.be/jrC3VER2D28

Is it a violation of religious freedom to do so?

Trey Gowdy and the supreme court say the government cannot force you to accept a religious minister.

What that means depends upon your definition of "religious minister" and even religion?

Does the State already force you to accept the ministers of their choice?

What is a minister and what is he suppose to do?

What is the difference between a minister of the world and a minister of the Church?

Is religion what you think about God or how you perform your duty to your fellowman and also to God or the gods of the world?

Who are the ministers of your real religion that take care of the needy of your society?

Cain, Nimrod, Caesar were Rulers who force the people to do what they thought was good. John the Baptist and Jesus were not.

Pure Religion is taking care of the "widows and orphans" of your society unspotted by the ways of the world. The world has ministers who force your neighbor to contribute to your welfare but a minister of the Church established by Christ cannot use force. They are another form of government.

"Social Security In America" was originally a private affair but today "widows and orphans" are cared for by public offices. "Social Security Programs Throughout the World" provide for the needy by forced contribution which is contrary to the ways of John the Baptist and Jesus to say nothing of Paul the Apostle and the early Church.


According to the book "Social Security: An Introduction to the Basic Principles", By Danny Pieters,

"The administrative hierarchy will usually be headed by a minister who is politically responsible. This may be the minister of social security, welfare or social affairs. However, the highest responsibility in terms of administration is quite often spread over more than one government member: in addition to the minister of social affairs, there can be a public health minister who is in charge of the health care system and/or a minister of employment who is in charge of the social protection in case of unemployment."

Modern "widows and orphans" are cared for "Under the direction of the Minister of Social Welfare", according to the "Social Security Administration", who are the men who call themselves Benefactors but exercise authority one over the other.

These duties used to be performed by the Church by ministers who were forbidden to exercise authority one over the other.

Is your minister from His Church or is he from the welfare or social security office of the "WORLD" that claims they are Benefactors but exercise authority one over the other?

Social Security is not only a failed system, but it also undermines the fabric of society.

People need to repent.

    "The symposium (or symposion) was an important part of ancient Greek culture from the 7th century BCE and was a party held in a private home where Greek males gathered to drink, eat and sing together. Various topics were also discussed such as philosophy, politics, poetry and the issues of the day."
    " The equivalent of a Greek symposium in Roman society is the Latin convivium."
    Plato in his "Laws" endorses the benefits of the symposium as a means to test and promote virtue in citizens.
    This word sumposion is derived in part from the word pino which means "figuratively, to receive into the soul what serves to refresh strengthen, nourish it unto life eternal"
  7. ranks is also repeated twice in original text and is from the Greek word prasia which as a Hebrew idiom i.e. they reclined in ranks or divisions, so that several ranks formed, as it were separate plots or divisions.
