Christians: Keeping Our Pastors Accountable – Just As They Do You.

( In light of mega-churches, 60 million dollar jets and mansions while church members struggle to pay rent and make end meet, it is time that we all examine what has gone wrong in our churches of today. So you say you have been taught to believe to keep the pastor accountable is judging and you are not to touch God’s anointed? If you believe that completely, you have been brainwashed. So you say you don’t know enough of the Word of God to correct the pastor? Then you are ignoring God’s directive to study to show (shew) yourself approved so you will not be ashamed because you will be able to rightly divide the Word of truth. Or maybe you even say the materialism and worldly thinking of the money-changers in the church today does not bother you. Then you fail to realize I Corinthians says we are all members one of another. And if we are, than what one person (pastor) does clearly affects the Body of Christ as a whole. Or finally, maybe you believe the deception that a pastor is not to be corrected. Wrong.

Church and America.

Accountability is for everybody – yes even your pastor. He (or she) is not just accountable to God. He is accountable to the Body of Christ, the church God has entrusted to lead. No pastor is above correction. And if you are in a place of worship where the pastor is not corrected when he or she deviates from the word of God, you are in a dangerous place. A pastor is a leader and a shepherd – not a god or a king. The pastor is not better than you. He does not walk on water.

You gotta ask questions. Questions are not negative criticisms and asking questions is not judging. Ask how much your church brings in. Ask what the money is used for or where it goes. Ask how much the pastor makes. Ask about the process of helping people as God’s word says – giving, not loaning people money. Ask about the protocol for correcting Biblical errors from the pulpit. Instead of asking and speaking up, when many people discover major errors or false doctrine, they leave the church and the deceptions continue to go unchecked. Sometimes people leave because the pastor has strategically placed people in place to counter even legitimate objections, making them seem like the ramblings and gossip of troublemakers. So watch out and expect legitimate objections to be met with resistance.

You gotta study for yourself. If you do not study for yourself, it will be all too easy for a pastor to teach you false doctrine and make it believable. An uninformed sheep can be the victim of deception just as quickly as a deer at a waterhole becomes prey for a hungry cheetah. Therefore you have to double-check the scriptures and context the pastor uses. Yes this requires study just like when you were in school because the Bible tells us to study – not just to read it, memorize a verse a week, read a passage before bed at night or blanketly accept what the pastor says as the complete truth.

One of the deadliest false doctrines to hit the Christian church is the “Prosperity Gospel” – a scripture-twisting doctrine that some mega-pastors use to promote materialism while they get rich but most of their members never will. I am not saying we are to be poor, but promoting worldly riches, buying Rolls Royces and Lear Jets does not represent the biblical prosperity that tells us to place our treasures in Heaven – not on Earth. Another deadly doctrine is the Christians have to pay tithes. This doctrine is used by many pastors to count on and gather money to advance their own agendas and by other pastors because they cannot distinguish between Old Covenant paying of tithes vs. New Covenant guidelines for giving (Luke 6:38, II Corinthians 9:6-7).

People are being deceived in many churches all over this country because of two primary reasons. The first is because they do not or will not study for themselves. Maybe some of you have not been taught to STUDY the bible, but instead only to read it. The second is because many Christian people have a sincere desire to trust their pastor, to hope he/she is teaching the right thing. But nobody is perfect, errors from the pulpit can devastate family after family and YOU have to know the bible for yourself in order to live it. It’s time to wake up and stop being brainwashed. How did Christ do so much without private jets, mega-sanctuaries or taking up tithes (He didn’t collect any and neither did the Apostles)? This is your wake up call to stop being gullible, tricked, deceived, manipulated, used and made to feel guilty.

Study to shew yourself approved and you will be able to spot false doctrine.

    Indeed! Every African American pastor, priest deacon etc.. should be held accountable for their actions for the funds, donations, payments that they receive from the black community. A black priest or pastor is responsible for ensuring that our black community is heading in the right way by promoting honesty, integrity, unity, love, peace among our people and self defense against those who do not look like us, think like us and or suffer 400 year of oppresion like us.

    The African American pastors should give their church goes and members a complete detail and breakdown of their financial gain; but, more so they must show evidence that the money they receive from black people is been deposited in black owned banks and black owned financial institutions. It is sickening to see black pastors preaching the religion of the slaves AKA Christianity and then turning around and placing the hard earned money been given to their black churches into white banks and white ownership.

    Every African American pastor or priest should have a home or house in a black neighborhood, their children should be attending black schools, black HBCU’s, they should a black gardener, a black tax preparer, a black tutor for their children, a black housekeeping; more important, the black pastor should not spend the money given to them on materialistic items, fancy clothing or luxury cars or anything that will not benefit the prosperity of our community.

    White America has brainwashed our black communities into following a religion created by neanderthal cave dwellers in Europe who brought that garbage to the new worlds, where they use it as a tool during slavery to control, rape, killed and manipulated the African slaves who will later become African Americans to prevent them from ever rising against them and again the children of the former slavemasters.

    Enough with these black pastor telling black people to pray for good things to come while white people only prayed to their white banks and businesses and are doing better than the religious fanatic black Christian who prayed to a white God every day and everyday a black child is killed by a racist white police officer who do not believed in God, then a racist judge throws your black son or daughter in jail for life and he does not believe in God and a Karen calls the police on your black son because he is black and she does not believe in God. Yes, black people believed and followed the religion of the slaves given to them by white people and white people themselves do not believe in that fairy tale. Yes, if there was a real God and white people believe that garbage, then do you really think they will be doing the things they have been doing to us for the last 400 years.

  2. A wake-call. Thank you.
