My friend posed this question to me that he’d once heard:
“How much would it change the church and Christians if the pastor worked a regular job like the congregation and what would be different?”
What would our lives be like if pastors went to work in an office, or the oilfields, or as a teacher? Did you know there are bodies of worship who have pastors with jobs?
Another question I’d like to ask: Are church members to be reliant on pastors for teaching and spiritual growth? If so, why? If not, why not?
