This is only for people who believe the Bible to be God's word.
"Get thee hence Satan, for it is written, 'Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve!'" (Matthew 4:10). Satan got no love from Jesus on that request because Satan isn't worth worshipping. Next we see Cornelius, a general in the military, bowing at the feet of Peter giving him reverence. But we also see Peter telling Cornelius to get up because men aren't to be worshipped (Acts 10:25–26). Later on in 1 Corinthians 1:12, we observe members of the Lord's church in the city of Corinth arguing about which preacher they would show reverence. In 1 Cor. 1:13, Paul rebuffed them saying, "Did any preacher die for your sins? Were you baptized in the name of any preacher?" Paul also said that preachers are only servants by which men learn the gospel (1 Cor. 3:5–6; Romans 10:13–21).
Yet, we see many churches calling the preacher Father, Rabbi, Bishop, Most holy, etc, etc. These people are wrong because the word of God teaches that all men are the same (Matthew 23:1–10; 1 Cor. 4:6). The preacher doesn't deserve a parking spot marked "Clergy," while everyone else must park where ever they can. The preacher isn't supposed to be called Reverend since that is God's name (Psalm 111:9). And there is no such thing in the Bible as "Preacher anniversary day." Tell your preacher that the next time it comes up.
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
