A poster at the Boar’s Head Tavern wonders about the “ministry of discernment”, which is a euphemism for heresy hobbyists, which is actually a euphemism for “gossip and slander.”
“Ministry of discernment”? There is no such thing. It’s a hobby, somebody made it up. You can’t take a gift mentioned in the NT in the context of local church life, abstract it out of its context, give it your own definition, dub yourself one of the gifted, go off on your own, start a website or anewsletter, and think you’re exercising the grand charism.
If you can’t overcome your propensity to quarrel you just baptise it. Just like in software design: whatever is dysfunctional just needs a function dreamed up for it. It’s not a bug, it’s a feature.
