Another Pastor Is Stepping Down....
In 1980, the musical group Queen released a chart-topping song, "Another One Bites the Dust." The refrain says simply,
"Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone and another one gone
Another one bites the dust..."
I spent almost 23 years as a pastor in Nashville. Through the years, I have seen pastors develop acute illnesses and die young, some pastors were run off, others had moral failings, some were dismissed because they were getting "too old," and some quit out of utter frustration.
Time after time good churches and good men were under spiritual attack. Now, sadly, I see another pastor stepping down.
I can almost hear the demons singing, "Another one bites the dust." Do you think it is not a designed spiritual attack on the church? Think again.
You can read more about this phenomenon in my newest book, Lectures from the Gates of Hell. It is coming out next month.
