[color=#0000FF" size="4" face="times]Thanks for contributing invaluably, Scripture.The church is getting a little too familiar with the expression "the pastor." Literature is reviewed that is "close" to traditional teaching, but in that regard is "rough around the edges." The great drought of Biblical teaching from 1960 to 1999 in the pulpits, and the endorsement for a psychological gospel (or something like that, I don't want to insult psychology) taught the church to be "bored" with the demonstrations of the Biblical standard of teaching. The momentum of the first half of the 20th century was thrown out with the later half century preoccupied with doubtful interpretations of society. To see the sickness in video, look at the Baxter Herald of Truth videos in the 1960s and 1970s. What appeared to be "progressive" then seems like a lot of nonsense today. These videos of course are anchored in Abilene.

In that article, Waddey was "marked" as a false teacher.
Donnie, actually Max does not like to be referred to as "Pastor." He prefers and requests that he be referred to as 'Max."[color=#0000FF" size="4" face="times]Thanks for contributing invaluably, Scripture.
Hopefully, the church is not getting too comfortable with that expression: "the pastor." I seem to remember that Jason mentioned in one of his earlier sermons about himself being referred to as "pastor" [and he may have "liked" it, I think].
Max Lucado loves it when introduced to the audience as "Reverend Lucado."[/color]
