On my way home yesterday I was listening to the local Christian radio station. A new show was starting and the intro was all about the guy speaking. He was introduced as "Pastor-Teacher Dr. So and so". Not one, not two but three titles! He must be awfully important.
Why do Christians love titles so much? Pastor this, Reverend that. Why do men who should see themselves first and foremost as servants cherish and often demand the privilege of being called by those titles? What is being covered by those titles? Is it pride? Is it a lack of self-confidence? Whatever it is, it is a cancer in the Body of Christ. Titles exalt some over others and there is no place for that in the church.
