Question

Has anyone ever discovered a pastor heavily using another pastors work, some practically word for word, for most if not all of his sermons? If so what is the best way to handle it?

Well, they're all using the same source material, and unless the other pastor is copyrighting all his material, (a terrible idea anyways), as long as the sermons are good and biblically sound, I don't know that it is a problem, ethically.

Now, if he is a full-time pastor, with plenty of time to prepare sermons, and he is being paid to do that, but all he does is use others' sermons, then maybe that ought to be taken up as to whether he is doing his job. But I doubt there are any pastors who haven't used other pastors' sermons before. Even Charles Spurgeon admitted to preaching Matthew Henry verbatim.
