"Touch Not the Lord's Anointed"???


Reader do pastors, preachers, and other ministers have a special "anointing" from God making them beyond question? Are ministers an "elite" class? I've heard this many times during the years when I question someone's teachings. 



I've witnessed lately online a disturbing trend in Christendom were a notable number of bishops, apostles, pastors, preachers, and evangelists are beginning to talk and act like they are an elite class of Christians and are not to be questioned in regards to doctrine, behavior, or anything else.


 They often use Psalm 105:15 as their "proof text" to scare the "common" believer into submission, declaring God may "strike them down" if they dare question "His anointed ministers" beliefs, methods, or behavior. Once again, do pastors, preachers, and other ministers have a special "anointing" from God making them beyond question? Are ministers an "elite" class?

  1. This is another good one...Be prepared for the foolish answers you get. People love their passa and are willing to fight you over them. Standing in a pulpit no more make them a pastor then me standing in a garage will make me a car.

  2. This is for anyone who come with the crazy. Ask yourself,what were Paul and John doing in 2 Timothy 2:17 and 3 John 9. They seem to me to be publicly naming people in the church whose teachings were false. Surely our approach to false teaching by believers must follow Jesus teaching on sin in the church in Matthew 18:15-17 which includes telling it to the church where there is no repentance. I would contend that public false teaching usually needs to be corrected publicly particularly when it comes from those whom have been previously recognised as teachers in the church.
    Saul’s disobedience and apostasy is publicly exposed by the writer of 2 Samuel under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. David was not given authority by God to physically harm Saul but there is no injunction against criticism. We see this by the fact that David publicly rebukes Saul on several occasions e.g. 1 Sam 24:8-21, 26:17-22.
    I also have to disagree about Psalm 105:15. Reading this verse in context it seems clear to me that this concerns God’s protection of his anointed people Israel (and her prophets).
    From the new covenant perspective, all believers are anointed to serve as prophets, priests and kings by their union with Christ. So this rebuke should be heard by all who might do them harm by false teaching, whether they be believers or unbelievers.

    1. COGIC Bishop,

      I agree with you that the verse is used by preachers who do not want to be criticized or checked for their sinful living.

      Incidentally much as the “preachers” do not want to be criticized and “act” like they are “Christ-like”, they are not living according to the precepts of God. They like living in greatness and splendor and be seen of men. A few verses below should sober all those who like yelling out “touch not he Lord’s anointed.”

      “But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.” (Matthew 23:11)

      “…Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.” (Luke 16:15)

      “Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,” (Romans 1:1)

      “Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” (2 Timothy 2:19)

      Let us learn to be servants of the most high God, and not load it over those who are under us. We will instead look more like the Pharisees that Jesus righteously criticized (“…The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: ...they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,” Matthew 23:1-5)

      The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall NOT want…

  3. That verse in the BIBLE is for any Man ,Woman, Boy, or Girl that is truly SAVED and SANCTIFIED and FILLED with the HOLY GHOST not just the pastor. Folks just get stuff twisted for there own benefits. GOD loves everyone HE has no respecter person. But some folks in the church do. And so do some pastors. Folks that use Psalm 105:15 all the time in the churc it's about the pastor and his wife and family members. That's a spirit of witchcraft and intimidation they are using on folks. IJS

  4. Ah YES. The get out of judgement card the pastor groupies love to use when there is no excuse for the leaders foolish, sinful and sometimes criminal behaviors.

    Your pastor use the churches building fund to buy himself a Range Rover

    Failed to pay child support to his baby momma (JAMAL BRYANT)

    Had sex with a member of the church on HER DAUGHTERS bed, (see a few post back)

    Her is your get out of judgement card.

    Many of these followers will say, yes these actions were bad, but we can't talk about it because "touch not my anointed, do my prophets no harm"

    However these people are blind to the fact that if these people were truly men of God (anointed/ prophets) then they never would have committed some of these foolish obviously non-Christian leader type actions.

    Anyone that uses this scripture to keep their pastor in the pulpit in opposition to their carnal behavior has a serious lack of judgement, and is guilty of idol worship.

  5. Excellent article Ms. ANN. All believers are "His annointed ones". Most preachers ie Juanita and the rest who would portray themselves as special an elite, do not teach the simple verse in 1 John 2:27. That is why we have to read the Bible for ourselvws...

    1. @ Get Outta Here!!!

      Amen!!!!!!!

      Let me put out this verse for emphasis to those who think their bishops/pastors are all that and more:

      "But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him." 1 John 2:27.

      The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall NOT want...

  6. No man is above God's laws. When Jim Jones became demon possessed, he used the same scripture and flipped it upside down and dupped hundreds of misled lossed followers because they didn't follow the true Holy Ghost. This scripture is used to terrify members in the congregation to obey at will and not ask questions.
