The 3 Most Dangerous Thoughts For A Pastor

We all know that one's behavior and actions start and begin with faulty thoughts and beliefs. And although we may never actually verbalize these thoughts to others, nevertheless these deep rooted beliefs become dangerous to us and to the ministry that we lead. Here are the 3 most dangerous thoughts to think and believe:


It all depends on me - believing that we can and should do it all is dangerous, because in reality - we CAN'T! Having this false belief,  leads us to not trust and involve others in the ministry as well as to neglect delegating to others. The truth is, no matter how much we may believe otherwise, we are not indispensable. Yet when we do believe that, we end up creating an environment for burn out and as a result we won't be in the ministry much longer.  

It can't happen to me - believing that we are so spiritually mature that somehow we are above moral failure, puts us right in the middle of the danger zone.  1 Corinthians 10:12 - "So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall!" We must as leaders be constantly vigilant. What this means is that even the smallest thought or fantasy moves the dial just a little bit further in the direction of a full blown moral compromise, i.e. porn...adultery. 

Nobody understands me - at the moment we think that no one can or will understand our struggles and challenges, we become isolated and closed off to others. We cut ourselves off from life giving relationships and as a result we become even more vulnerable to moral failures and compromise.

The challenge is for us as ministry leaders to not let these thoughts take root and life in your heart and mind.

Can you think of any other dangerous thoughts that I may have missed?

2 comments: you seem to know more about me than I even know about myself. After casting the protection spell and career spell for me my life has changed. Every communication that I had with you during the whole process was priceless because you truly help me lift my spirit up and gave me energy and hope to chase my dreams. After only a few sentences from you, I feel recharged, ready to take on problems that seemed insurmountable before. I am truly blessed to have you in my life!

John is totally in love with me. He said that he would rather be by himself than with anyone other than me. He told me that he thinks of me, cries, & fantasizes about me everyday. Today we made love for the first time in 19 months.

Thank you He wants to be together forever & is willing to do whatever it takes for that to happen.
