Posts filed under: ‘Pastor has hissy fit‘
Come on isn’t there more to concentrate on… like feeding the hungry and clothing the poor… to take time out to agree with some lunatic pastor who decides he’s tired of people falling asleep on him… so he steps down out of his pulpit to confront a sleeping man.
Personally, some pastors feel a little too much about themselves …like they were made king over a kingdom rather than a pastor over a congregation. And as king they feel that everything is subject to them and their every wish and desire… and sadly enough almost everybody in the congregation is to blame for this haughty and arrogant attitude that many pastors come to have over their congregations.
The pastor that had the hissy fit began by first stating that he was ‘important.’ Poking himself in the chest he said, ‘I’m important.’
Okay… that tells you something right there. Because he considered himself important… more so than God and certainly more than what he was saying ‘which should have been his delivering the word’... but HE was important. From that point on he… the pastor was out of order… and definitely not in the will of God, who calls upon us to act in all ‘meekness’ and ‘humbleness.’
So, in that pastor’s selfish pursuit to have ‘everybody’s attention’ on him and him only he steps down out of his pulpit… disrupts his own Sunday morning service to rebuke a person in his congregation for sleeping. And this is what Marvin Sapp says every pastor has a responsibility to do…. ‘because they are responsible to God for their members.’
Hog wash, Marvin Sapp. And it is a clear misunderstanding of scripture by tying together a string of scriptures on Marvin’s part, in an attempt to make it appear scriptural that what that pastor did was right and in alignment with God, when he stood up in the middle of the church service to rebuke a church member for sleeping.
Scripture is not made to make us embarrass… or for anyone to embarrass us. In fact, in many scriptures it speaks of ‘be thou not ashamed…’ whether it be the gospel of Jesus Christ… or of God… or of the Word of God and His commandments or how we are to live and carry ourselves etc..
God chastises us for many reasons… but He is not going to waste His precious time to get after us about falling asleep. He is much too busy for that. And nowhere in the Bible has He or anyone else ‘ever’ done that to anyone… though Jesus did get after Peter and John when he left them to go up and pray and came back to find them sleeping… and though we are told that Paul was long winded and someone did fall asleep on him. But the guy was fool because knowing his habit of dozing off …he sat in a window fell asleep and fell out the window. But no where in that story does it say that man was rebuked for having fallen asleep.
In fact, the story where the man falls out the window the story appears to sympathize with the man by preferencing the story by telling us from the very start that Paul was subject to being very long winded.

What in the world is Erica trying to do in this video?
What is godly about it?
These type of songs and videos are generated to appeal to a certain audiences… but can’t break any yokes… or deliver anybody from anything… or speak into the heart of anyone… or do anything but as in this song… make a mockery about really loving God… who requires that we don’t come to Him just any kind of way.
God just does not accept any ole thing… any ole way….
Oh, well I guess that is it for me today. Hope your day is going along well and everything… and I do mean… ‘everything’ is good with you.
Well, God bless…. I’m gone. I’m starting to get hungry now. Didn’t really eat anything last night. Wasn’t hungry… but now I could devour a horse. : )
