1 Thessalonians 4:9-12 – Deadbeat Disciples

The church at Thessalonica had no doubts that Jesus could return for them at any moment. So much so that some of them misunderstood the implications of His imminent coming. They decided to quit their jobs and wait around for Jesus to rapture them. Their idleness was becoming a burden to the other believers as they meddled in their affairs and mooched off of them.
