Who Do Christian Worship - God, Jesus Or Their Pastors?

There appears to be a certain cult of Pastor worship amongst many Christian communities, particularly African Christian communities. This has grown to the point where no criticism of any manner of the pastor is tolerated by the members of the communities. The likes of Jim Jones comes to mind, but in the current times we have the likes of Pastor Adeboye, Pastor Chris, etc, etc. Why have Christian so blinded themselves by the teachings and charisma to these charlatans.

The majority of these Christians are so mesmerised by these Pastors that if they were to walk in on the Pastor shagging their partners, they are likely to ask the Pastor to shag them as well. That is the level of the slavish attachment to the charms and falsehood of these pastors.

So who do these Christians venerate? God, Jesus or their Pastors?

It was used to described those who believed in the gospel of our lord Jesus Christ.

Acts 11:26:

26 When he found him, he brought him back to Antioch. Both of them stayed there with the church for a full year, teaching large crowds of people. It was at Antioch that the[b] believers were first called Christians[/b].

Beleiveing in the gospel of christ also means keeping his commandments which are basically to love God and to love your Neighbour as your self. These are the two most important things in the practise of christianity after becoming a believer.

Christians worship God the Almighty.

Members of certain denominations defend their pastors when you want you want to speak nonsense against them. Remember, this is not worship.

No child would allow another child to inflict insults on his father. These pastors are the spiritual fathers of their members.

Yes, most of the Christians are crazy about their pastors, because they (pastors) show them the way to salvation. They brought light into their lives.

BUT,

All worship goes to God Almighty.

you miss the point, much as i don't like indulging in Huxley's post what he is trying to say is that a lot of christians (especially the pentecostals) idolize their pastors and focus on pastors more than God or Jesus. Most christians don't even understand their faith anymore and this iis due to overdependence on pastors. In my own opinion very few christians and pastors rtruly understand the christian faith well and that is why there is so much division and hypocrisy in the church. The truth is that the teachingsof these pastors help in breeding atheist like Huxley, cos they try to complicate the good news by twisitng it to suit their fancy and make it as vague as possible were as it is quite simple and straight forward

The christians are meant to obey God rather than men.that means if the requirements are different,then you choose God.Of course God is The Father,The Son Jesus and the Holy Ghost.If the requirements are on the same page with God's,then obey.Obedience to God is not a call for insurbodination.We should obey our leaders(Spiritual and others) as long as it doesn't displease God.
