I wonder how many people here will admit to having unrealistic expectations of pastors. On another thread, a comment was made by a poster who said he could not stand the sight of overweight pastors. So, exactly what is a pastor allowed to do or not do for you to respect him? Is a thinner, fit man who struggles with the unknown sin of p*rn a better pastor than a fat one who struggles with eating healthy? Is a pastor NEVER supposed to have ANY flaws, either spiritual or physical? Is it okay if he disobeys the speed limit as long as he doesn't yell at his wife? Is it okay if he is a messy slob as long as he doesn't eat fried chicken? What about the pastor who watches violence and cursing on TV in the privacy of his own home? Or mows the lawn without his shirt on? Or let his daughters wear shorts? Or lets his sons wear earrings? Are these truly credentials that should make or break our opinion of another Christian or of a pastor? Think before you answer. Too many expect pastors to be "super men" who never struggle with any outward sin.
