Hello all, I am new here and I would appreciate any guidance. Many of my church members disagree with the new pastor in major and minor decisions. The new pastor would tackle issues ranging from smoking, breaking rules, marriage to a non-Christians, and attendance in specific meetings. He has a high standard for everyone in the Church. However, brothers and sisters are more accustomed to a relaxed pastor for many years until now. Is my pastor too demanding, or is my congregation in need of a wake up call? Thank you.
