More on work

Here is another video I liked from Doug WIlson.

Academics & Work: Has the church damaged the Protestant doctrine of vocation (Part 8 of 11) from Canon Wired on Vimeo.

I especially liked his line that we seem to see the non-clergy, i.e. the laity, as "breeders and tithers", a necessary evil in the church.

That is actually quite good. Is that how we sometimes see "regular" Christians, as merely pew fillers and tithe payers, an audience for the preacher to preach to? Don't we see the pastor and missionary as somehow better or more important than the rest of us? Keep in mind that Doug is a pretty traditional guy and still he sees this.

What do you think?
