The idolatry among professing Christians is nothing short of amazing, and pastors are encouraging it. They love the personality cult that surrounds them. They love the rock star status. And, they love hiding their sins behind a code of secrecy
The Pharisees did exactly the same thing, and Jesus called them children of the Devil. They were the pastors of their era, and Jesus called them out and said that they were vile and evil. He said that they were whited graves, vipers and children of Satan.
Today, instead of the Pharisee, we have the sinful pastor.
