Brother And Mrs

Recommended Posts

I have noticed in a lot of IFB churches we refer to Brother "smith" and then when talking of his wife we say Mrs "smith". Where I grew up it was always Brother or Sister. Is there a reason for refering to the ladies as either Mrs or MS rather than Sister? If so, why do we not refer to the men as Mr instead of Brother?

Huh, never heard one say that. I generally refer to all the ladies at our church, & just about ever church I've been a member of as Sister  ........! Just about any where I see them.

 

And just about all of the men as Brother.

 

At one time my pastor, who I was great friends with, I got to calling him by his 1st names when speaking to him in person, yet anytime i referred to him I would place Brother before his 1st name. I got to thinking about that & decided that I would change that, & start using Brother all of the time, it took a while to break the old habit. I thought doing that would set a better example for anyone that might heard me.

 

And of course its true, all of us who have Jesus as our Savior are truly brothers & sisters. And some of them will or might be closer to us than a true brother or sister.
