What is the Gospel?
The scripture is clear about the threats faced by the church as well as the role of the shepherd (pastor) as the chief defender of the sheep assigned to his care and oversight.
In 1 Samuel 8, the elders of Israel, went to Samuel and gave him reason why they wanted to be governed by a human King after the manner of other nations. (vs 4 and 5) The scripture tells us that Samuel was displeased by this request. Samuel knew that this was not the will of God for the governance of Israel. Samuel went to the Lord in prayer concerning this matter.
“Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people” - Henry Thomas Buckle.
According to the scripture, presiding over a church is NOT what makes one a pastor. The callings of God are NEVER chosen by men.
Maybe the church needs to be reminded concerning the use of the Name of the Lord and on the dangers of using His Name in vain.

Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? (! Corinthians 6:3)
