RE: Personnel Evaluations

Thank you for submitting the resumes of the twelve men you have picked
for managerial positions in your new organization. All of them have
now taken our battery of tests, and we have not only run the results
through our computers, but also arranged personal interviews for each of them
with our psychologist and vocation aptitude consultant.

It is the opinion of the staff that most of your nominees are lacking
in background, education and vocational aptitude for the type of
enterprise ou are undertaking. They do not have the team concept. We would
recommend that you continue your search for persons of experience in
managerial ability and proven capacity. We have summarized the
findings of our study below:

Simon Peter is emotional, unstable and given to fits of temper.

Andrew has absolutely no quality of leadership.

The two brothers, James and John, the sons of Zebedee, place personal
interests above Company loyalty.

Thomas demonstrates a questioning attitude that would tend to undermine

We believe it is our duty to tell you that Matthew has been blacklisted
by the Greater Jerusalem Better Business Bureau.

James, the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddeus, definitely have radical
leanings. Additionally, they both registered high scores on the manic
depressive scale.

However, one of the candidates shows great potential. He's a man of
ability and resourcefulness; he is a great networker; has a keen
business mind; and has strong contacts in influential circles. He's
highly motivated, very ambitious and adept with financial matters. We
recommend Judas Iscariot as your Controller and Chief Operating

All the other profiles are self-explanatory. We wish you the utmost
success in your new venture.

What if Jesus had chosen the twelve based on the modern methods of
leadership selection? Most of them would have never had a chance to
participate. Jesus chooses people not for who they are, but for what
they can become in Him. Aren't you glad that when Jesus looked at you,
He didn't take you for what you were (a sinner); but He took you for
what you could be? Jesus sees the potential in all of us, and has
called us to be disciples. Jesus is still saying, "Follow Me!"
