A Pastor is a shepherd that takes care of the flock of Jesus Christ. He is expected to treat them exactly the way the Owner says He should treat them. This treatment is according to the written Word. Pastors are commanded to “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.” (2 Timothy 4:2). Unfortunately, many pastors don’t use the Word of God to rebuke their members when they are going astray. If a man of God, who is a spiritual father, refuses to discipline his spiritual children it means he is treating them like bastards because it is only a bastard that will not be disciplined, as we are told in Hebrews 12:5-8.
