There is no office of an apostle in the church today. That may come as somewhat of a surprise to some of the readers of this article, but we must appeal to the Scripture on this subject. Peter, Andrew, James, John…the rest of the twelve…along with Paul held an office in the early church that isn’t part of today’s Christian economy. A simple study of the Biblical qualifications for an apostle should correct any misunderstanding along these lines. This may not be enough to convince a modern self-proclaimed apostle. But it should be plenty to convince a Bible believing Christian.
