As you know, Christians are called to be the children of God, serving Him. Not many are appointed to be set aside for His Ministry, but out of those who have been, what do you think is the kind of work for God that carries the most risk?

(Or put in another sense, what kind of job would enrage demons the most? --> save the people and damage Satan's kingdom etc)

Of course, putting it in the most correct sense, all jobs are safe when you have God in your heart and know exactly what to do, and there are no risks, but I think you know what I mean. (I realise some of these actually overlap depending, but treat this as a fun thread)

I'll throw up some roles of God's ministry, feel free to add in. (This is just roughly thrown together, I don't mean for this to be serious discussion anyway)

- Pastors/Priests/ Deacon/ Preachers
(Teaching the Word of God to masses, best influence)

- Cell/Care group leaders, members
(they do individual care, and these groups build future and potential powerful and sucessful leaders)

- Music, Songwriting, Video Sermons, Media, Public Relations, Ads, Marketing
(remember the power of media is widespread reach and exposure. God will find some way to touch each of them after they've been exposed to His Word first :)

- Power Prayers, Tongue speakers, Healers
(These people demonstrate the power of God, and deliver people from their struggles. People who've experienced God firsthand are likely to convert, not all, but likely to have strong faith because of miracles)

- Evangelicals, Mission trips
(Lend help, concentrated in villages or a certain area at one time, there's strength in numbers. If a whole area has heard of God, it is better than just one, then the one won't have to listen to worldly speech and might get influenced and doubt again.)

- Baptists, anoiting with oil, cleanse houses, Holy Communion etc.
(These guys are important too, God expects believers to baptize themselves someday, as an act of faith. Consider this as strengthening the bond between believer and God, remembering God)

- Admin, Tithing, Finance, Logistics, Merchandising, Rental, Lease
(They keep churches in check, make these trips overseas for Pastors possible, help to make sure people have places to listen to the Word of God, keep track of good opportunities to invest, expand church and reach within homeland, provide finances for the publication of Books, resources for Christians, CDs, DVDs, fund mission trips)

Any more?

im in the music business sorta (going to school for it) but i think another one would be hard labor like construction. In construction one might help make repairs on the church, evangelize through volunteer construction and in a construction setting

Isn't 'spreading the word' another way of saying 'imposing their beliefs'? The missionaries deserve to get shot to be honest.

yeah..i salute them. twe may not do their jobs personally but we can be senders by supporting them financially and through prayers...missionaries are really like soldiers going in a battlefield. but i know that God's faithfulness will always be with them no matter what.
