Like it or not people judge pastors. Some people judge before they even meet us. We often confirm their judgments upon meeting them. Still others just go by what they hear and believe the images and caricatures placed on pastors. Here are just a few that I’ve heard. We must dispel these myths.

1. We only know the Bible.

2. We’re not educated.

3. We’re out for money.

4. We’re rich!

5. We only work one day per week.

6. We don’t associate with pastors of other denominations/faiths.

7. We don’t watch tv or movies.

8. We’re “holier” than others.

9. We’re self-righteous.

10. We’re perfect.
