I know this is not going to sit well with some, but oh well.
That talent is given to us and we better start using/working it or we become an unprofitable servant.
I'm not saying your wrong here, but I think the objection to this, is that people would feel that you might think you have the right to look at someone else and say they do not measure up based on what you believe works should be.
Many people have been victimized by this expectation people have of others when we start talking about "we must have works" and "by their fruit you shall know them"
Paul it's not about judging others but about judging ourselves.
We are to inspect our own fruit to see what manner it is of not other people's fruit. Does He not tell us to test the spirits? The test is in the fruit that comes from the spirit; whether, from the spirit of man (flesh fruit) or the Holy Spirit (spiritual fruit).
I realise many people look at it the way you present bro but that is their hang up and takes nothing away from the truth matter.
God gave us the talent and expects us to use it less we become unprofitable servants.
2 Thessalonians 3:7-12
7 For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you; 8 Neither did we eat any man's bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you: 9 Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us. 10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work
, neither should he eat.
11 For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies. 12 Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.
Notice Paul says if any will NOT WORK they should NOT EAT.
Now I know most here see things not just in the natural sense but also in a spiritual sense, so I ask you what is the spiritual sense here Paul is talking about?
Is Paul not saying that if they eat the meat that they should WORK and if they do not WORK then they should not bother EATING?
Therefore one who eats and does NOT WORK becomes unprofitable.
