From the Pen of a Spiritual Father

  • By Dr Phillip G. Richards
The Pauline epistles of 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, and Titus are called Pastoral Epistles because they consist of instructions given chiefly to the young pastors Timothy and Titus. The Apostle Paul was a spiritual father to Timothy and Titus, as well as others who were born again under his ministry. "For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel" (1 Cor. 4:15). The need for genuine spiritual fathers is as great today as it was during the early Church period. Many young ministers and laymen alike are looking for leadership examples to follow, as it is only natural to do. The more the pressures and tests of life attack the modern Church, the more we need the wisdom that comes from these spiritual fathers. From the Pen of a Spiritual Father uncovers the doctrinal, as well as the practical side of pastoral ministry and spiritual leadership that today's spiritual fathers can gain wisdom from, as they disciple their spiritual children. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; text-align: justify; font: 11.0px 'Minion Pro'} Dr. Phillip G.
