It amazes me when, I listen to messages now and again how many pastors base their message on how other churches are not “getting it” in their humble opinion. If I attended a church where they constantly are complaining about other churches and ministries (What did Joel Osteen ever do? So you may not agree with him….are you really going to discount the work that God is doing despite the situations?) I would leave. There is a simple principle here. When I was youth pastoring and now as a lead pastor I can very easily tell you who the insecure people are…they are the ones pointing out the flaws (according to them) in other people. They constantly talk about how they look, dress, do their hair blah blah blah. Those pastors who constantly talk about others from the pulpit (churchy word) are some of the most insecure people you will ever meet.
In church you got to stick to the Bible and life application. This isn’t a message but rather a blog so I am just stating my observances…it would do me no good to tear other churches or pastors apart in my messages. If you are a loud one….why? To discipline your “flock”? ugh….glad those days are over.
