“Father Knows Best”?

I’ve already explored the concept of “spiritual fatherhood” and “covering”, so this short post is simply an illustration. If you attend New Birth South Metropolitan Church in Hampton, GA, then Pastor Andre Landers is your spiritual father (your “daddy”, if you will). Eddie Long is your “spiritual grandaddy”, and T.D. Jakes is your “spiritual great granddaddy”.

For disclosure purposes, I was “submitted” to Andre Landers in ministry before I repented, left this church, and submitted myself to Christ Himself as opposed to this “prophet” who “spoke on His behalf”.

Moving along…

If you’re a woman who attends NBSMC, then you’re in luck – your “daddy” is going to meet with you tomorrow night (March 11th) in the new 4 week old $22 million dollar worship facility. Your “daddy” wants to talk to you about what’s on the minds of the men in your life – and he’s calling the event “Father Knows Best”. Click the link to view the video, and come back.

Don’t waste time going to your real Father to discern what’s on the heart of your man. Don’t even waste your time talking to your man about it. Forget what God say’s about your man’s heart (Jeremiah 17:9-10). Just relax – your “daddy” is going to fill you in on everything you need to know.

When you get back home from the event, read Matthew 23:8-12:

8“But (A)do not be called (B)Rabbi; for One is your Teacher, and you are all brothers.

 9“Do not call anyone on earth your father; for (C)One is your Father, He who is in heaven.

 10“Do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ.

 11(D)But the greatest among you shall be your servant.

 12(E)Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.

    Thank you for exposing the “spritual father” aspect of pastors looking to bind the congregation. This “hero” worship is unbibilical, and a device set in place for control. I have seen this in action and can testify that it’s effective where money is concerned. I’m praying for a spritual revival of this church and others like it.
