- He preaches what people want to hear. The Bible warns about people who have “itching ears”. This pastor says, “Tickle, tickle, tickle!”
- He values his paycheck and popularity more than pleasing God. When the deacons start making threats and people start leaving or threatening to leave, he pulls out the pacifier again so that all the church will be happy (so he thinks).
- He won’t initiate or suggest change because they’ve “never done it that way before”. Why rock the boat? It’s much easier to do nothing for Jesus than to be uncomfortably obedient. He will base every move on whether or not someone might get mad. The church won’t do squat, but all is peaceful because it’s dead!
If you are a true believer who wants to grow in your faith, Pastor “Pacifier” won’t be good for you. The church will stifle you, and you will always crave for more in your Christian life. Go where you can grow and be challenged while praying that Pastor “Pacifier” gets some guts.
