Today a church members only vote, revealed that 60% of it's members want to keep there pastor. Even though he has gotten divorced, deacons have gotten on to him about the clothes he wore, and deacons have also been asked to get on to him about not visiting the sick or elderly of the church.
All while he has been pastor there.
I am disappointed in the outcome, so I have no choice but to explore new churches. Am I the only one who thinks he should resign on his own. I understand people feeling sorry for him because he has no where to go from here at all. But feeling sorry and Gods will are 2 different things.

I'm assuming God told you his will right? Here's a better option: leave the man alone and stop being an asshole. His business is his business and the last thing anyone needs is another pseudo Christian, Jesus freak trying to get someone fired in the name of the Lord. You're a bad person.

Which raises an interesting question of etiquette:
Is the church required to invite you to the big blowout party they will have, once they find out you're leaving?

I wouldn't have a problem with the divorce or the clothes he's wearing. I do think the pastor needs to visit the sick and elderly. If its a big church they might not be able to and the deacons would need to help.

Wow, must of struck a nerve. And for your info I'm not bad person nor a so called Jesus freak. I am however a truly blessed man who is thankful for everything. And you my friend need to decide if your Christian or not. Because from the paragraph above, it reads as if you haven't got a clue if you are or not.

It is people like you that make the world a difficult place to live in. You must not be a Christian either. So sad.

He would be late for morning service so he would get in a hurry getting ready and his hair is messed up and clothes not match and all wrinkled.

Jesus did not wear the best clothes but yet is God's son and our Savior. What does it matter that his clothes are wrinkled. We are not to judge as Christians. Do we go to church for the message or to look at what people are doing and wearing? I know I go to church to become closer to God by hearing His word.

Maybe I'm missing the totality of the situation because of lack of detail in the explanation...

DO you realize how petty that sounds?

Yea, it did...you're yet another person trying to get someone fired because of your interpretation of Gods will. You're sick. If you are the true definition of Christian, then I'll pass...I choose love not blind, ignorant hate. You are an awful person.

How dare you sit in judgement. Poor little thing didn't get his way so he is going to run home and start a thread on Topix.

a) majority rules-deal with it or leave.

b) the same judgement you hand out is the same standard that God will judge you by.

c) you do not know either Pico or Bob, I do and guess what- yeah they believe in God and are probably MUCH closer to Him than you are.

Your choice of username "tells" me that you are umable to make a decision and stand behind it.

You are not concerned with your beloved church, because you are a sower of discord. You practice one of the oldest forms of witchcraft-usurping your pastor's authority and deliberately undermining the chain of command of operation that your church has established.

IF you truly disagree with the vote and how the manner was/is handled, then shut your mouth, get off of Topix, PRAY for this pastor, his family and the church and go find a church that meets your standards.

You all seriously called the man out about his clothes? What, was he wearing a g-string in the pulpit? As for the divorce, unless you know every minute detail of the man's PRIVATE married life, then leave him alone. While I don't condone divorce just because two people get sick of each other, the are instances in which it is absolutely necessary. I have no idea which pastor you are referring to or why he is divorcing (and I don't want to, no names, please), perhaps there is something going on that you all just don't know about.
hmmmmm?

Ok. The clothes thing is just silly. Now the divorce is another matter. You don't give a lot of details, but, you can find the only acceptable reason for divorce in the Bible. If that was not the reason he divorced the my opinion is yes he should resign.

Most of you think I'm an awful person. But you do not know the ongoing problems with this situation. I was asking if you think he should resign on his own or if he should have let it went this far. Which has caused a divide in the church now.
And further more it's a shame that we provide him s place to live, we pay his insurance, we pay his children's insurance, we pay his salary, and during last months budget meeting we had to ask if someone would take a pay cut because we could not pay the bills of the church. And he recommended that the youth minister not be a paid position anymore. I'm mean come on.

Are you trying to say that the man is not fulfilling his duties as a pastor, and as such, is no longer deserving of the job nor the benefits that come with this paid position?

Then why did 60% of the voting congregation decide to keep him?

Why should he NOT have 'let it get this far' in your opinion?

I'll pray for you tonight. And I'll pray that all three of you suffer a very tragic death in the very near future. I hope to see you in hell. Because we shall have lots of fun together. Kiss your families good night tonight, for you are not promised tomorrow.

I guess its no worse than a supposed Christian based counselor specializing in divorce and marriage having an affair with a woman that he is counselling.
