Reflection. The "Vision" of the Pastor. By Fabian Massa.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator. 


What is the "vision"? 

Arguably is a reading of a reality (social, a person, a country, a political, business or religious organization) and glimpse the optimal state where you want to raise to that reality. The "vision" is related to the view, that is the "look" (social, economic, financial, educational, geopolitical, etc ...) trends and developments. The "Vision" of the leader will determine the "mission" of the organization driving. 

The Mission will be to get the organization to implement actions necessary to achieve the "Vision" actions. Mission details concretely what is intended to do and is concatenated with the objectives and goals pursued and the strategies to achieve them; vision precedes the mission without vision there is no mission, vision being a more comprehensive and less comprehensive and detailed statement. 

In recent times, many pastors have taken these figures from the marketing and business management sciences. 

In societies each business group has a "vision" and "mission" and they all point to win the market, making profits and generating business growth. This is very good for the economy and finance: A market with a variety of opportunities and articles is much healthier and balanced than a limited market dominated by monopolistic groups. 

But not always what is good in the markets is good for the Church, simply because the Church is NOT a business. Thus we see how each church makes their "evangelistic Offers" to capture "market" of believers, with those who have the greatest result that preach the "Prosperity Gospel". This is nothing more and nothing less than that which was prophesied by Peter: 

2: 1 But there were also false prophets among the people, as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 

2: 2 And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of, 

2: 3 By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words. About now of a long time their judgment is not idle, and their destruction does not slumber. 2 Peter 2.1-3 RV60 



But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, marketing is very good for business, but should not replace sound doctrine. It is not correct to change "how" to do things the biblical way to business. This is a covert heresy. 


And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed usually called "Great Shepherd" are very numerous congregations and even mega churches. Many people make a Great church, but this is not always synonymous with flood Church. 


In their greed they will exploit you with deceptive words. These Mega Churches handled fortunes, their pastors are very rich, preach that the anointing is accompanied by economic splendor, and themselves preach prosperity are the most thriving. Peter warned: "On such and long time their judgment has not idle, and their destruction does not slumber." 


In the same way that many "visions and missions" business has fragmented the market, the fact that every pastor has "its own vision" has fragmented the Church, bringing competition rather than collaboration, jealousy and envy rather than fellowship. Every pastor and every denomination has "The Little Book, His Theology, His vision and his own recipe." What happened to theology, vision, mission and recipes that Jesus left in the Bible? Simply each chose the same, following the career of the World behind the "I", so everyone has "His" own vision and mission. 

The vision and the correct form of a pastor to lead the church of Christ is that Christ left embodied in the Gospels and advice inspired by the Holy Spirit to give the Apostles. 

The pastor who dares to look at Jesus and preach the true gospel, that receive support from Heaven, God himself open doors, provide, support with powerful signs and miracles, embarrass their enemies, save from evil and make their ministries have fruit in abundance. 

God said, "22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and no more. "Isaiah 45.22 King James Version. 

It's back to the old way of looking at God.
