    Martin Luther’s 8 Qualities of a Minister

    A special thanks to Darrin Patrick for sharing these 8 qualities from Martin Luther on traits a minister must have.  Also read Darrin's great article on discerning God's call...

    1.  Able to teach systematically

    2.  Eloquence

    3.  A good voice

    4.  A good memory

    5.  Knows how to make an end

    6.  Sure of his doctrine

    7.  Willing to venture body and blood, wealth and honor in the work

    8.  Suffers himself to be mocked and jeered by everyone

    Read Darrin's thoughts here...

      Since you asked, Todd, I think the gentlemen of Acts 29 are more Lutheran than they might a) realize or b) care to admit. smile

      (Spoken as a Lutheran who has much respect for the gentlemen of Acts 29.)
