Hymn 405 - Call to Labour by Ken Paginton

This hymn was written by Ken Paginton

Hymn 405 is titled by Ken "The Call to Labour".

The first line is "Lord, let me hear once more the call to labour, the call that rang beside blue Galilee, to turn from home and lands and friends and kindred: Speak, Lord, again and say "Come, follow me."

See this quote from Ken Paginton, a 2x2:

The only ministry recognized in eternity is the ministry prepared to go out into the world as Jesus did; poor, a stranger in the world. And we can never thank God sufficiently enough for this. - Ken Paginton

We can see from Ken Paginton's quote that this hymn reflects his 2x2 beliefs. After reading the hymn, I get the "look at poor me" feeling.

From my experience in the 2x2 work, the workers were not prepared to preach the gospel as Jesus Christ taught it. Nor do they make disciples of Jesus Christ. They are simply hirelings and work for the overseers who want people to continue to come to meetings and giving the workers money, from which the overseers collect money once a year at convention.

This quote by Ken also reflects a complete misunderstanding of the mission of the apostles of Jesus Christ. Their job was to go to the lost sheep of the tribe of Israel. They were to heal the sick, raise the dad, cast out devils and preach that the kingdom of heaven was nigh. Their goal was not to be homeless (they had homes ready for them), nor to be poor. Their goal was to do the will of the one who sent them, Jesus Christ.

Hymn 405 reflect the erroneous beliefs of the 2x2s. They have heard the call from the overseers and it is them that they work for.

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. - Jesus Christ speaking to Saul, see Act 26:18, see Salvation through Jesus Christ.
