(A Bishop is the same as a pastor)
|My Pastor Bro. May|
(1Ti 3:2) A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
(1Ti 3:3) Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
(1Ti 3:4) One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
(1Ti 3:5) (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
(1Ti 3:6) Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
(1Ti 3:7) Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
To find a good Church you must:
#1. Make sure the preacher has nothing to do with the red highlighted words above and all to do with the green ones:)
#2. Check out his wife-she should be like the godly women of the Bible.
#3. Check out his children-they should be well behaved and godly.
