Question Of The Day: Should Single Men Be Eligible To Lead A Christian Church?


Young Prophet Manasseh Jordan! 
I don't know if this is a good thing or not but, there are lots and lots, of single pastors within the Christian Community.  Some are single by divorce some by death and some by choice. And from the look of things it's becoming more a trend and  the norm.

Once upon a time, long ago this (single pastor) was frowned upon and considered by most to be a taboo. After reading the piece over at The Christian Post it got me to thinking and asking questions like:

Are single men disqualified from the pastorate? If so why?  Are single pastors in a sense more qualified for pastoral ministry and are better suited for it than pastors who are married? If so why? Do you the reader agree with that statement? If so why?   What if a single young man believes in and preach the full Gospel of Jesus Christ, then should the fact he's single be a barrier to him being a pastor? If so why?   Does the phrase “husband of one wife” in 1 Timothy 3:2 still apply to today's pastor? If so why or why not?  Do you, the wonderful reader of this blog requires your pastor to be married?  If so, why or why not?

Why Do People Think The Historically Black Church Don't/ Didn't Teach The Gospel?

Trip Lee, Eric Mason and Lecrae.
If you're reading this article most likely you're a "Black Christians" like my self, who grew up in a black church in a black community some where.  There's also a big ole chance you have either come from a "Black Pentecostal" background or you are still part of it. What ever the case might be you probable heard the lie the black church don't teach the gospel according to the Bible. You probable also heard this line that Martin Luther King Jr. was NO Christian and he sure was not a Baptist preacher because he didn't preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. But King instead preached  a social Gospel. Any way the  interview below is very enlightening and it mention  some of the challenges that exist between  historically black churches and the so call gospel-centered theology.
