I don’t believe in the “PK” sydrome. You know, the “pastor’s kid” nonsense. I don’t believe that the children of pastors are attacked by the devil at any rate higher than anyone else’s children.
Having said that, I do believe that pastors have a responsibility to lead their own children to a saving grace of Jesus Christ and to lead by the example they set in their own home. If a pastor, raising children in his/her own home, cannot live the type of life that their own children would want to emulate, then that’s not the type of pastor I would want to sit under. It’s not even scriptural, though I won’t start quoting scriptures here. Email me if you desire a scripture to back up the fact that if a church leader cannot control his own family, he has no business leading.
Anyway, Covina sent me a tip today. She led me to some information about one of the leading pastors in Cleveland, Ohio. His name is R.A. Vernon. I’d never heard of him to be honest with you. There is an MTV program called “Sweet Sixteen” which highlights the children of wealthy parents. It’s one of the saddest, most pathetic shows on t.v. Spoiled, ungrateful children turning sixteen who are “entitled”. Half of them probably cannot even add 6 + 15, much less multiply or divide, yet they are profiling at their silly parents’ expense. It’s obscene.
Never would you expect for a pastor to allow his children such excess or to broadcast it on television. Yet. Pastor R.A.Vernon allowed his daughter to have a “rock and roll” themed party. Viewing the video, one cannot help but wonder whether or not this young lady is even saved. Her whole life appears wrapped around her father’s money.
I blame the church members in Cleveland for financing R.A. Vernon’s lifestyle. One in which at one point he would fly his helicopter from one side of town to the other as he visited his two churches. He also owns an airplane. Again, it’s insanity at the expense of fleeced flocks.
