Accurate thought expressed inaccurately has consequences. That which is intended for good ends up causing harm. The concept of spiritual fathers and sons fits the above categorization. It’s a legitimate biblical concept and it has associated benefits and risks. The problem is not in the belief per se. It’s in the expression. The father-son ministry paradigm has very specific, biblically designed-for-life, boundaries of expression that are routinely violated by the well meaning misinformed, the unhealed insecure, and propagandists with a personal agenda. This booklet examines thirteen areas in which the father-son ministry paradigm is being implemented poorly, exceeding legitimate biblical boundaries, or careening into falsehood and abuse as well as some unique elements of the relationship between apostles and prophets that intersect the father-son ministry issue.
