Question from Barry Lindsay on 01-07-2013:

Hello Dr. Richard

Define stewardship and missionary.

Thanks I appreciate your time

Answer by Richard Geraghty on 02-17-2013:

Dear Barry,

A missionary goes out into the world to spead the message of Gospels. He or she follows Christ's command. Also everyone is responsible for using the goods of the earth properly. The trouble starts when some take up more of the goods of the earth and crowd out the rest of people. That greed is a sign of not being a good steward. Only God is the proper owner of the earth. When we die, we lose everything. As is said "You can't take it with you!"

Dr. Geraghty
