I had an interesting conversation yesterday with a friend and the topic was Pastors who have people in their employment that lie or do other things that are ungodly, but yet the Pastors do nothing!
There is no doubt that the Pastor is a man of God, full of the word and compassion for the people. However people employed by him are backbiting, lying, misrepresenting Him, the Church and God. people are smiling in your face, and saying praise the Lord all day but as soon as you turn your back, their tongues start wagging!
The Pastor knows to some degree what his people are doing but they are still employed by the church and in positions of authority.
Now, I say that the Pastor is ultimately responsible for the people that he employs and their behaviors and attitudes “WHILE AT WORK”! I understand that at home, on their own time what they do is their business but if you work in the church especially in a PAID position you should be held to a certain standard. I also feel that it is a SIN and a SHAME that nothing is done and these people are allowed to run things the way that they do. I feel that ultimately the PASTOR is responsible for the image that these people portray to others who enter the church since as the sheperd he is “supposed” to be the head of that house.
Jeremiah 10:21 (Amplified Bible) – For the shepherds [of the people] have become like brutes, irrational and stupid, and have not sought the Lord or inquired of Him or required Him [by necessity and by right of His word]. Therefore they have not dealt prudently and have not prospered, and all their flocks are scattered.
So what do you think?? Leave a comment and share you 2 cents!!
