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 they are someone who is 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. These guys need to be sitting in their seats with the rest of the audience.
I know some movie stars, athletes and musicians have a posse and it appears some preachers do as well. Acts 5:36-37. (red flag)
