  • some people call them selfs Christians and are really not. Some of them never even read the bible. some pastors are the same. Make sure you are going to a real chruch and not something fake and such.

  • pastors/preachers/ministers/priests/rabbis/deacons/missionaries..i could go on..are not perfect, nor incapable of sin, or wrong choices. just like you and i, they can screw up sideways and back down again. they are not 'special', or held above any other person; they simply 'answer the call' to spread the gospel..just like any person professing Christ as Saviour does..or should.


    as sahmamax2 said, they are human. and as Gomer Pyle would say, ''SURPRISE! SURPRISE! SURPRISE!"

  • calling yourself a Christian does not automatically make you a good person... al we can do is worry about ourselves and what WE do with our lives

  • I agree with the other ladies that they're only human as well, but I also look to this scripture...

    "But there were False Prophets also among the people,
    even as there shall be False Teachers among you,
    who privily shall bring in damnable heresies,
    even denying the LORD that bought them,
    and bring upon themselves swift destruction"
    (2Peter 2:1).

    There are many false teachers in this world, we must test them, find the true Believers, and look to the Word of God for the Truth and to Jesus for an example of who we should be like because other people are not capable of setting the standard for being a Christian...only Christ could:-)

  • It's not a new thing. Preachers have been sinful practically since the beginning of Christianity. They are human. Humans, when put in a position of power, tend to let that power take over. It's sad, but true.

  • Everyone is human and makes mistakes, but being in the limelight like they are, pastors get their mistakes broadcast to the world. Being a pastor has to be one of the most thankless jobs on earth.

  • Because they are in it for the money, not faith.
