“…when it [Pastor] says something, do it. don’t question it…DO IT.” Just do it. Questions require thought – oh no, no, no. Don’t Think. Pastor will think for us. He will edit our sermons, for public consumption. He will ferret out traitors in our midst. He will defend his sagging reputation. He will consolidate his assets. He will rev up his propaganda machine for us parrot to the masses. Our families are his. Our wives are his. The youth are his. And anyone who gets in the way of that will be disposed of. Used to give you credit for your incredibly devious ways Pastor. Lately, you resemble the world so closely that I guess it wasn’t your smarts after all. You were just following orders from the Prince of this world. You know, the Father of Lies. You followed your own advice…DO IT…don’t question it. And you have. Like the Prez, like Hillary, like Dr. Huxtable…[Ahem}…aren’t we supposed to be good examples? And open. And honest. And true. And pure. You are just a whitewashed mausoleum Pastor. With a stone lid thats cracked, an underground one, that people walk over, thinking they are on safe footing. Yikes!! Any moment they might come crashing into one of your pits. All God wants is to warn people. Stop. Danger ahead. DO NOT cross here.
But God says, “Now therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways…Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways” (Haggai 1:5,7). “The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master’s crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider. Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward” (Isaiah 1:3-4). “Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling; Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm” (1 Timothy 1:5-7).
