The Baloney On Your Theological Sandwich…

… also known as “full-time Christian work.” It’s not as healthy or holy as it looks.

Many glorious truths were recovered in the Reformation, and one of them was the doctrine of vocation. Unfortunately, this is part of our Protestant heritage that we have shamefully neglected, and have almost lost. One of the principal indications that we have lost this doctrine is that we nowadays speak easily and readily of ‘full-time Christian work,’ as though there were anything else for a Christian to do. The reestablishment of two ‘holiness’ layers of occupations in Christendom has been a terrible loss.

(Douglas Wilson, Father Hunger, p. 98)
