Considering the Pulpit Ministry?

Carl Henry: [Dr. Lloyd-Jones], would you therefore encourage young people to consider the pulpit ministry…above every other vocational call?

Martyn Lloyd-Jones: No, that’s something I’ve never done and never would do. Such a decision must be a personal call from God…I’ve always tried to keep men out of the ministry. In my opinion a man should enter the ministry only if he cannot stay out of it.
