Just Wondering

While I sometimes enjoy the content of a number of Youtube channels run by certain pastors, I got to wondering when they have time to shepherd their flocks, considering all the TV watching, Youtube watching, and preparing their content that's involved, equipment, etc., so they can critique pseudo preachers and the like, and heaven knows they need exposing. Yet some things just don't stack up. Not to mention prayer life! Ministry functions are "... to equip the saints for works of ministry, to build up the body of Christ, until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God, as we mature to the full measure of the stature of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed about by the waves and carried around by every wind of teaching and by the clever cunning of men in their deceitful scheming." Ephesians 4:12-14. Focus on what's important, literally for Christ's sake! Or is Youtube monetization more important? I dunno. Maybe I'm behind the times, but what if things were being taken care of at home in the local assembly, the family of God, along the lines of maturing the saints, then just maybe the saints could discern for themselves who the charlatans are!
