Moderators Salyan Posted August 10, 2017 Moderators Share Posted August 10, 2017 This is an offshoot of the thread on Looking for a Local Church. I wanted to respond to the comment on pastors/children without taking that thread off-topic. 35 minutes ago, swathdiver said: Consider this. A NT church plants another in a nearby town. However, the pastor they chose has only one child. After several years the pastor has multiple children. So when the new church was planted it did not have a qualified pastor but in time he became qualified and the church is now scriptural. I disagree with the view that a pastor must have more than one child to be legitimate. He could have no children at all and be legitimate. I believe the passage is speaking more to a leader's need to correctly train and lead whatever family God may give him. To make it say anything else puts a burden on people that they have no control over (what if there are medical reasons preventing children? or children die?).
