One of the many blessings that I have in my life is the opportunity to work at a Christian bookstore. Being able to spend a day working around books and getting paid for it is a true joy. I have met many different people working at my job. They range from Mormon all the way to professional scholar. One of the people I have had the priviledge of meeting on numerous occasions is New Testament scholar Ralph P. Martin. He is a joy to talk with every time he steps into my store. But one of the saddest things that I encounter is the amount of pastors who come into my store who seem to have no desire for hard disciplined study that should accompany one's calling into the ministry. Now this is not the case for every pastor that walks through the doors, but it is sadly the majority of them. The choose the books that offer nothing of worth to the spiritual life of not only themselves, but sadly their congregations also. When I start up a conversation with them, I am often times left leaving saddened by their theological ignorance. These are men who supposedly have been "called" to pastoral ministry. I often wonder how they made it through Seminary, or even if they went at all. The Church is in a sad position these days, and the last thing we need are theologically inept pastors leading the Church.
