hipster pastorI just saw the trailer for a new reality show this fall called “Preachers of L.A.”

You can see it here:

It gave me all the wrong vibe.

But I can see someone say I’m rushing to judge and that I shouldn’t be.  Especially since it’s only sound bites taken out of context and meant by advertising guru to make things controversial so that people would be talking about it and hence, promoting the show.

I want to post 1 Timothy 3:1-7 concerning the qualification of an Elder/Bishop/Pastor so that viewers searching about it online can remember what God’s Word has to say about this show:

3 It is a trustworthy statement: if any man aspires to the office of overseer, it is a fine work he desires to do. 2 An overseer, then, must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, prudent, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not addicted to wine [c]or pugnacious, but gentle, peaceable, free from the love of money. 4 He must be one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity 5 (but if a man does not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of the church of God?), 6 and not a new convert, so that he will not become conceited and fall into the condemnation [d]incurred by the devil. 7 And he must have a good reputation with those outside the church, so that he will not fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

What are your thoughts?
