14 SIGNS YOUR PASTOR IS A DUD...
1. He treats lightly those things which the Bible treats seriously.
2. He makes lots of jokes and treats the sacred with irreverent humor.
3. He makes as many or more references to pop culture, sports, and secular writings as he does to the Scriptures.
4. He's wealthy; and he justifies it.
5. Your "pastor" is a woman.
6. Your pastor sounds like a secular motivational speaker or self-improvement guru.
7. He focuses on what God can give you or do for you, rather than on you doing His will.
8. He puts the word and traditions of men above and before the Word of God.
9. He makes everybody happy and never offends anyone.
10. He only talks about what God has done for you and promises you, never about what He expects or requires of you.
11. His "sermons" are 80% jokes and entertaining anecdotes and 20% spiritual edification.
12. EVERY sermon is a variation of an evangelistic message.
13. He "customizes" the Scriptures to suit people's tastes or his own agenda.
14. His conduct and character do not exemplify that of Jesus Christ.
