Can Bad Husbands Really Be Good Pastors?

That statement is a sobering one for me. It’s one that all pastors and church leaders need to hear.

There’s a real temptation in ministry (at least for me), to spend my time ministering to those outside my home to the detriment of ministering to those inside my home. If we allow our congregations’ needs to dictate our schedules, neglecting our responsibilities at home can be sinfully justified.

Remember, in order to be qualified to pastor God's people, a pastor “must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church?" (1 Tim. 3:4-5, ESV). ...

An excellent point, Bill. the only relationship that takes priority over the husband&wife + children is our personal relationship with God Again see, Husbands and Wives As Parents and Accountability as Teachers and even a few earlier sermons.

Good. Chris. a couple of sermons one directly connected here, and the one that was before it can easily be found from its URL. This is a new sermon that was preached about 3 years ago . It just got put up today. it's quite good about explaining the responsibilities of teachers/preachers.

Accountability As Teachers.

coupling this comment along with one in another thread about you councilling JY to come out of the church, that's all it's ever about...exposing the false doctrines and trying to get across to him the importance of attending a church that teaches, preaches, and trys to live by the bible alone. I know he does, but he surrounds himself with a lot of other pollution that must get entangled with truth at times. I know there are some who say things they shouldn't, speak poorly, and should just keep silent, but others do nothing but speak out about the false doctrines that enslave so many. There are people on this forum who care, minus those who rail against him for certain reasons. I think he's a special case and is worth the ongoing effort, although, I know I don't have a whole lot of company.

Get Real, Ruth is an example to go along with the Proverbs 31 woman (as Unprofitable Servant pointed out) of a virtuous woman. It appears you are writing your own version of Romans 3:10

Ruth 3:11 And now, my daughter, fear not; I will do to thee all that thou requirest: for all the city of my people doth know that thou art a VIRTUOUS WOMAN

Can a man be a good pastor if he has a wife who works against him and children that refuse to obey and respect him ? or are we to believe in the magic formula that some think exist,once again the assumption is made that in this modern society men have total control over their lives and everyone in them,or they could have if they pushed all the right buttons and used all the right formulas

By today's standards probably two in ten pastors are qualified to be pastors......I mean everyone instantly submits to and clears a path for a Godly man....right.

Being a good husband is also the Lord's work, and I would suggest necessary, in order that a married pastor might be a good one.

adjective: virtuous

having or showing high moral standards

so no women can have high moral standards? And if there can be no virtuous women, why does Proverbs 31 describe one?

Just curios

Based on the required qualifications for elders stated in I Timothy 3, the answer is no. The question posed by this headline was answered by the Scriptures thousands of years ago. The fact that someone would ask this brings "Have ye not read?" to mind.

These are loved by my Lord. The difference between you and most of us here is that we recognise Rome for the phoney monster that it is. And you present a ready defence for that Harlot.

In all our duels, it's Rome that I despise, not the Roman Catholics that Jesus came for and is coming again for.

Agree
By definition a bad husband can not be a good pastor

Genesis 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Ah Jim, we need to pray for our pastors. Pray for their families.

And no, I am not a pastor, son of a pastor, or play one on TV.
My concern is that the attack on the pastor and his family is of particular significance to the evil one.

Oh, and Charisma, the Pentacostal mag, citing biblical qualifications for a pastor, yet boasts the largest number of women pastors.

the pastor is right, the answer is No.

1 Timothy 3
1 This is a faithful saying: if a man seeks the office of an overseer, he desires a good work. 2 The overseer therefore must be without reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, sensible, modest, hospitable, good at teaching; 3 not a drinker, not violent, not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous; 4 one who rules his own house well, having children in subjection with all reverence; 5 (but if a man doesn’t know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the assembly of God?) 6 not a new convert, lest being puffed up he fall into the same condemnation as the devil. 7 Moreover he must have good testimony from those who are outside, to avoid falling into reproach and the snare of the devil.
