Two qualifications of a pastor are they are not to be greedy for money and they are to have a good testimony to those that are outside the church. As for the first qualification noted that would eliminate the majority of Pentecostal preachers today. Kenneth Copeland has his own airport for his 5 planes, Paula White told her congregation to donate a month salary or God would get them, Benny Hinn, Jesse Duplantis, Joyce Meyers, Juanita Bynum, TD Jakes, and many many more all are unqualified to be a pastor. The woman pastors automatically are unqualified according to the Pauline Epistles. What about those and let’s have a good testimony to those that are outside? Does Jimmy Swaggart when he had sex with prostitutes or Jim Bakker who bilked Millions of dollars from his followers? It would seem that the Pentecostal Church makes their own rules for pastors. And an literate congregation sees nothing wrong with that.
Why do congregations even allow such unbiblical pastors that flourish in the Pentecostal Church. They don’t follow the Bible one bit and no one seems to care. I classify the Pentecostal Church as an apostate cult. If the blind lead the blind both will fall into a ditch. Ezekiel 14:10 says, the punishment of the prophet shall be the same as the punishment of the one who inquired. Perhaps we should start listening to the word of God instead of the Godless Pentecostal pastors.
