Just a few days ago I was talking with a friend about a local group, rooted in the new apostolic reformation, and was asked if for my thoughts on "modern day apostles." Now one has to clarify what the word "apostle" so that we understand the question. For example does the word, apostle mean a reference to the "office" going back to the New Testament period or does it mean just a practical application of one who is a messenger. Since the question pertained to the office like that of the New Testament Apostolic office this posting will address the question from this angle.
Simply stated, the answer to this question as it pertains to the New Testament office is a resounding, "NO!" However, I will not let it go there. Allow me to defend this position and why there is no apostolic office in the church of the Third Millennium.
