Psychology Today published their results of the ranking of 100 professions according to their level of respectability, desirability and prestige. Pastors ranked 52nd, just below manufacturing foreman and just ahead of power station operators. Why? Perceived lack of credibility in the community. Although hypocrisy abounds, there is no room for pastors who are financially irresponsible, sensually stalking women, half-hearted in the ministry, empire builders, glory seekers or money grubbers.
