I have a question for ya'll. What would you think of a pastoral candidate who won't give a resume? He claims that the Holy Spirit is telling him not to because it would be boastful. I've known this man since our previous church (he was Associate Pastor there) and he's never settled right with me. I've seen him try to get into a fight with a total stranger because the stranger had blocked him in to a parking space while the stranger was just waiting on one to open up. The candidate got out of his car and was yelling at this guy and telling him he wanted to fight him. We live in kind of a rough area (not the worst but not the best either) and that could have got him killed. He also believes you can lose your salvation. I know this through another pastor who's had long talks with him and of course he hasn't preached on that yet but I'm sure it will come up once he's in. I trust what this pastor has told me and based on what I saw him preach on at the other church and a few things he's done at my current church I don't doubt he believes that way. He's got a Pentecostal background and still believes a lot of un-biblical things from that church. A few Wednesdays ago he had us pray for a lady which was great until he told her "you are no longer you, you are your daughter now" and no one seemed phased by it. I looked it up and it's a Pentecostal belief. There's a lot more that he's done including stuff to my family but it would take too long to go into. I'm really concerned for my church. Most people want this guy. Even our associate pastor says he's got a Jekyll and Hyde personality. This church has gone through 2 pastors in 1 year (that's a story in it's self!) and they're to the point they don't care who they get. Please pray for this church. I'm afraid for them. We are a Southern Baptist Church BTW.
