Question: "Is there a difference in the function between a ‘minister’, a ‘preacher’ and a ‘pastor’?”
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan answers the above question on his Facebook page:
"Well, some preachers are more evangelical than pastoral. An evangelist is one who preaches The Gospel with the spirit and fire of The Gospel, spreading The Gospel; and you will see thousands coming to these great evangelical preachers. But after one has accepted Christ, then the next thing is to nurture them into Christ Consciousness and Christian Living. So the pastoral side of it is the more difficult side, because now you’re dealing with the weaknesses and strengths of the person who wants to be a good Christian."
Good food for thought!!
