Although Steven Anderson claims to have read the Bible cover to cover, he clearly didn't gain any understanding from it.

1 Timothy 3 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

3 This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. 2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; 3 not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; 4 one that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; 5 (for if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) 6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. 7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

Then again, this man doesn't really show any evidence of being born again in Christ.

And I noticed how he said "his church", not God's church or Christ's church.  How sad.

Unfortunately, Sue, most 'pastors' will refer to 'THEIR' church -- as if they're a totally separate body from other church buildings. Which, I guess, they are, as they're almost certainly not of Christ's body...
