Turnabout is fair play. A reader named Harper took a statement that I made in my post “Why I’m glad not to be that kind of pastor” and turned it around. Then, he used my own strike-through “re-mix” style. (Unfortunately, he couldn’t post this as a comment, so he emailed it to me and I’ve published it here.):
Here is the first installment of â€œ
Scripture Alanâ€¦â€¦As We Live See It #1â€:
Actually, I donâ€™t think the problem is with being a â€œpastorâ€ per se, but with the unscriptural
expectations control that many Christians leaders (especially elders or â€œpastorsâ€) place on demand over those they recognize as leaders followers (especially elders The Church or â€œpastorsâ€ â€œsheepâ€).
By the way, I think the church needs a “course correction” (punt and do-over?) in the area of leadership. And, I believe that this course correction must come from both directions: both from those who are recognized as leaders and from those who are not recognized as leaders.
