Reverend: An Unbiblical Human Title
This is a brief teaching on the unbiblical human title of “Reverend”. The bulk of this teaching comes from an email exchange between Pastor Slattery and a man who believes that the title of “Reverend” is perfectly fine for a minister. Pastor Slattery points out many Biblical examples of how this title should not be applied to a minister, but to God only: “Psalm 111:9: He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name. Is your Pastors name HOLY? Is his Name Reverend? The word Reverend is the word most translated: FEAR, Afraid, and Terrible. The term is used literally hundreds of times in the OT in reference to a God and his people where they are told to Fear the Lord. For his full teaching on this subject please click the link below.
