When Pastors Become Brands
We credit leaders for things God does.
Pastors Eric preached last Sunday from 1 Corinthians 1:10-17 and the danger of trusting our leaders more than we trust our God. Our tendency towards "brand loyalty" can divide the church into factions, forming rivalries that have more to do with preferences then doctrinal purity. These rivalries aren't a sign of discernment, but in the case of the Corinthians their immaturity.
