Lane Chaplin has a great video of Dr. Alan Cairns of Let The Bible Speak Ministries in Northern Ireland. Dr. Cairns thoughtfully and biblically details the fallacy of the modern-day “apostle” phenomenon:
Are There Apostles in the Church Today?
In a previous post, I explained that according to scripture, the office of Apostle was a FOUNDATIONAL OFFICE, not a permanent position with fringe benefits. Please note that Dr. Cairns explains that the apostles were “sent” to spread the Gospel, so in that respect all believers are called to do the work of the apostles. The modern-day apostles, however, have no biblical ground to stand on in “declaring” their “apostolic ministry” (complete with lofty titles, submitted sons and daughters, and the like). Once again, the irrefutable Word of God is clear and concise in the hands of a biblically sound teacher.
