You and I are not celebrities we are servants, and so are pastors. I have been a bi vocational pastor for over 20 years now. I have pastored a church weekly for 10 years of that. My experience has been that we as pastors thank to highly of ourselves and the temptation to pride is very real. Many especially in high profile churches, mega churches for example become celebrities.
Right away when we allow this to happen we deviate from being a Christ follower. Listen to what Pastor Rich Villodas has to say.
