A pastor colleague said, “Pastors are told to hide their true beliefs from their congregations in order to keep their jobs.”
I asked, “Told by whom?”
Pastors have as much power as anyone in a church to shape who is told what; ministry is largely a vocation of persuasion. The job largely consists of telling people what you believe and trying to convince them to believe likewise.
I’m still waiting on an answer.
One thought on “Told”
I love your challenging question. My usual version is “Says who?” But this works, too.
