What is this thing about a preacher on stage giving his message and having men standing in the back of him, as if they are his body guards? Do preachers really need guys to line up on the stage with them, giving the image of being great?
Preachers need to keep the message simple, humble and clear; and the same virtues need to surround their character (1 Peter 5:5-6). When you see a preacher with a group of guys standing behind him as his speaks, one would have to wonder what message is that supposed to send? The audience needs to hear and see the person who is speaking; but they don’t need to be distracted by men standing in soldier-like positions behind the speaker. Why aren’t those guys sitting in their seats with the rest of the audience and listening to the message? I know some movie stars, athletes and musicians have a posse; and it looks likes some preachers have them too, Acts 5:36-37 (red flag).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
