Speaking as a pastor’s son: this really matters. The surprising thing is not that pastors’ and elders’ children backslide, the surprising thing is why more don’t. And a lot of it does turn on the way these children see their parents treated by the church that Dad is pastoring. I know I’m “preaching to the choir” here, but forewarned is forearmed, men.

This is especially when the rhetoric from the pulpit does not match the reality on the ground. My father brought me up to think that the particular tradition we were in (Pentecostal) were, in Christian terms, “the best and the brightest”. That didn’t match what even I could see at the time in this particular church, and I know a lot more about the situation now.
