Recently upon travelling from university I came across a fairly new Christian sect called Jesus Christians.
They were handing out DVD's which had a QR code linking to a Youtube channel called A Voice In The Desert.
According to this video, they claim that the three steps to revival in Christianity are as follows:
- Quit your job
- Sell everything
- Preach the Gospel
I know in the Gospels Jesus asks His disciples to give up certain things, and there is at least one of each occurrence of each of the above in the Gospels but has Jesus actually commanded us to do the same or was it directed to the Disciples at the time?
Moreover; what does the rest of the Bible teach about giving up jobs for Jesus? From my understanding Paul worked very hard as a tent maker as a means to support himself in his ministry, I also understand that a lawyer was mentioned in the passage below.
Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey diligently, that nothing be wanting unto them. Titus 3:13 (NIV)
What is the biblical basis for Christians quitting their jobs for their salvation?
