Normal human beings have no desire to have power or control over other human beings. Why then do those in pulpits and those in politics have such an inordinate lust for power? The staggering self-importance of pulpit masters is really very embarrassing. In fact those who stand in pulpits and pretend to speak for God, are very immature human beings, whose low-self-esteem is more than evident to any discerning thinker.
God in fact does not need preachers or pastors. Virtually anyone can convey Jesus Christ to another human being and it does not require a fake religious degree from some bible college. The idea that those who accept and believe in Jesus, must be treated as school children for life, is the stuff of silliness.
Why must a preacher or pastor stand before a crowd of people, with an open "Bible" and read to them and expound to them, as if they are morons, incapable of understanding without being told what to think? This is of course the world of man-made CHURCHIANITY.
If you belong to a church, then you are a religious slave to the pastor, priest, bishop, elder or overlord of that church. Never mind that we read where Jesus said "call no man master (which is the same as calling a man pastor or elder or shepherd). "
At least for those who do believe in God, there is no master aside from God, so then pastors of churches are usurpers, who feign that they represent God, when in fact they do not. The hidden motive for churches and their overlords is always the same, and that is the free $cash.
