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.

Or maybe he's just a pastor who is unfortunate enough to have a congregation that nit-picks and finds fault with everything he says.

I know some people who keep bouncing from church to church, until they run out of churches within easy Sunday driving distance, then they just stay home on Sunday because no nearby church is good enough for them. What they don't realize is if they ever found a perfect church they wouldn't be allowed in, because if they started attending a perfect church it wouldn't be perfect any more.
