You might be an angry pastor if …

“You always shake your fist when you preach. You blame everything on actors and politicians. You rant on social media about, well, everything. You assume I’m writing this to someone else.” - The Baptist Paper

Discussion might wonder if the key problem is that the pastor is angry, or that he is distracted from the Scriptures and the Gospel.

To draw a picture, Biblically speaking, our key problem is not actors or politicians, but our own sin nature. If you're always shaking your fist, then....aren't you ignoring the gentle pastoral passages in the Scriptures? Spending too much time ranting on social media....unless your flock is only online, isn't that ignoring the flock?

So as I go through the symptoms mentioned here, my thought is that the primary problem is not anger. It is a lack of Biblical orientation.
