This title, along with Dr. and The Honorable bishop..., among some baptist ministers/pastors seems to rub me wrong. I guess I have trouble seeing humility in the title, and I wonder how this title of boast glorifies Christ. I have much more respect for the one who boasts of himself as "servant" of the Lord, as Paul did. If I'm not mistaken, the term reverend applies to one who is or should be revered. I've noticed that a few of you here embrace such titles as you have been found worthy to receive them of men, and many others here covet such titles-- and I'm not knocking you, I'm just curious to know what your thinking is behind it.
