and the pastor. I know, I know, every pastor is supposed to have all the spiritual gifts as laid out by Paul in Romans 12 and 1st Corinthians 12. Especially the two most important gifts of Omnipresence and Omniscience because Hey! who doesn't have that? All kidding aside, I have noticed after 16 years of ministry that churches do expect their pastors to do and know everything. It is a very real and unhealthy expectation that must stop if our churches are going to move forward in real ministry. The classic line "That's what we pay you for" makes me want to hit that person with a KJV family bible. You know, the 36 pounder sitting on the coffee table that is there for show only.
Wake up church. It is not biblical for the pastor to do everything in the church. We are not gifted to do everything in the church. Until we realize this we are going to keep failing as the church.
