Is Not Pastor Creflo Dollar The GateKeeper Of His House? Was Pastor Creflo Dollar Wrong To Rebuke From The Pulpit?
Reader I know everyone on social media have plenty of opinions and a lot to say about Pastor Creflo Dollar rebuking a person(s) for hollering out during a watch night service. He was not rebuking the person Pastor Dollar was rebuking that spirit that was interrupting the message. Someone stated that apparently this wasn't a regular member of his because they would know proper protocol.
"This is the new year so you will have people visiting that may not normally attend church. The question is was this person able to shake it off and keep coming or did it discourage him/ her from attending. There is a proper way to handle all things. A deacon could have went up and talked to the person rather than openly rebuking them. First you set order, and if they refuse to adhere to the guidelines of the church then rebuke them openly. Would you spank a child without them knowing a thing is wrong? A lot of people won't attend churches now because things aren't handled the right way...that is all."
"A pastor should not call out congregants in a direct manner during the normal, regular preaching of the Word. They should not use the pulpit to browbeat, humiliate, and bully individuals in their congregations. That is unbiblical and unacceptable."
Reader this is not a popular opinion but it's mine. He did right!! This is like when you are in someone house they are speaking you should not rudely interrupt them. He's ordained by God in his house. So, who has the right to scream out happy New Year's while he's bringing the word? I'm just saying this isn't a club!
If you were sitting there and it happened to you, how would you respond?
