Did he rule his household well?  With the father of the family dead, shouldn't Jesus, as the oldest brother have stayed home to provide financially for the family and also provide spiritual guidance and direction for the younger siblings?  Shouldn't he have cared for his widowed mother?  

No, he took off to roam the land - and I bet he didn't even send home a paycheck.  He called all his followers his brothers, sisters and mothers. 

He didn't handle the ministry finances too well either.  He allowed the treasurer to dip into the cookie jar.  That sounds like poor financial management, as well as poor personnel screening techniques.

House Church Talk is sponsored by the House Church Network.

House Church Talk has been renamed. These discussions, via the web, now occur at the Radically Christian Cafe.
