Are You a Pastor?

Are You a Pastor?” the ad on the side of my Facebook wall asked.

“Why does Facebook want to know that,” I wonder. There is picture of an award certificate with smaller print underneath. I read on.

“Get recognized for your accomplishments with a free certificate of recognition.”

“This can’t be real,” I sigh, painfully realizing somebody wouldn’t be paying for an ad like this unless pastors, like me, were clicking on it.

I had to see where it went; to see who was preying on us insecure, religious men. I clicked.

what's that bit of scripture about "double honour" for a pastor? maybe this is what the writer meant all the time?
