The church needs to follow the will of God. Following the will of the people will bring nothing but trouble. After all there’s a reason why the Bible says there’s a way that seems right to a man but in the end it leads to death.
I’ve known far too many pastors who have been unceremoniously fired by their congregations. To me this shows profound pride and arrogance on the part of the congregation. They act as if the pastor’s job is to make them happy, comfortable and lead them where they want to go, If you think a leader needs to take you where you want to go, who is really the leader?
Your pastor is not your employee. Your pastor is a leader called by God to lead your church where God wants you to go. Remember, ultimately, God is the leader of the church.
