What if “the call” itself is actually an extra Biblical concept that has been made up. What if the concept of “the call” has no Biblical basis and actually hinders Christian men from relying on Scripture alone as a guide when considering becoming a pastor?
Scripture presents its heroes warts-and-all! Noah gets drunk, Abraham and Isaac tell lies, David commits adultery, Paul starts out as a persecutor, and the list could continue. In fact, there are very few characters in Scripture (about whom we know much) for whom we do not have at least one big sin on record.
While it is true that Christians wish to evangelize the world, meaning share the good news of grace and forgiveness found in Christ with everyone, Christians also understand that many will choose not to embrace the faith or the ethics imparted by Christianity.
