I have a situation I wanted to get some feedback on. My father has always been discouraging and especially now since I am a pastor. Every time I talk to him he has something to say to bring me down. Right now he isn't living as a christian even though he claims he is. He does have alot of knowledge but never has lived it. He doesn't go to church and he is on his 5th marriage. He is my dad and I love him, but I'm finding myself not wanting to answer his calls or be around him. Have any of you pastors had a parent or famly member like this and what did you do? I have read scriptures like Rom 12:18, but just not sure what to do?
