Today’s episode might be a bit strong for some. There is a dangerous trend, especially here in American churches, with the messages some pastors are teaching, and we all need to be vigilant and aware of this. It’s not the most fun topic to discuss, and sometimes people get upset at calling things out like this, but second Peter warns of these dangers.
So what is it that I’m talking about today? What is a problem with pastors? Let’s get into it.
It is becoming all too common to find a big church led by a charismatic pastor who is a great speaker. He uses pauses well, he raises and lowers his voice on cue, he cries on demand… he puts on a really great show. It is emotional, it is strong, it is positive, it is encouraging.
But, what is frequently missing is the actual Bible, the actual foundation of scripture seems to be an afterthought, if any thought, in that kind of environment.
