    • "Pastor" means "feeder" A feeder is to "oversee". 1 Peter 5 Lead by "ensample" (example). with an exemplary life which includes loving people.. 1 Peter 5 His "feed" should be nothing but the Word of God, clean and unadulterated.  He should "disciple" by spending time with people..   He should also be mindful of the temptation to "lord" over others.. Luke 22: 25-27
    • Its a good topic and one I would probably follow but not one that I would be dogmatic about or really contribute a lot to as being commanded or not commanded or necessary or not necessary. As the command to take the oversight and to "feed the flock" are exceedingly broad and general but direct and encompassing a lot of things that would not necessarily be covered in detail but would make something not mentioned directly necessary as needed for the well-being of that particular flock. Acts 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. 1 Peter 5:1-4 The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: 2 feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; 3 neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. 4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
    • I thought this would be an interesting subject, but I guess not. I know I have had discussions with people about pastoral duties and it is surprising what people think are biblical duties for a pastor which are not. They are traditional. Some are good things to be done, but some are unnecessary burdens upon Pastors.
    • I don't know about over there, but here the ride sharing companies (those that use people with private cars as taxis) and several other companies have been prosecuted for trying to claim that their drivers are contractor to whom they don't have to pay benefits and for whom they don't have to pay taxes. They were wrong too, and they are not religious, therefore not being religiously persecuted.
    • Once again you fail to read the Bible. In the first place, not all covenants are two way agreements. See Genesis 15. Secondly the passage I quoted gives the entirety of this particular covenant and the condition for the Israelites is given in verse 14, and it applies to INDIVIDUALS, not the nation. Read it. Read it carefully. You are wrong.
