    100 isn’t a big enough sample size to be representative of all.

      how big is your average congregation?

      Average congregation size is 100. But I’m saying that the results of the poll were misleading because the sample size is too small to be representative of all Christians.

      Tyler Lee Price actually 80 but a 100 rounds it up Carefully and randomly selected individuals who in a survey form the perfect congregation to anticipate a single pastor answer but from different perspective If you go beyond the size you get too much data and end up asking too much of 1 single pastor – large scope is not needed here But feel free to try it with a 1,000 and see if the results will change any And No the results of the poll are NOT misleading in any away

      They are very skewed. You can’t survey 100 and get an accurate representation of a population.

    Have assurance of salvation; so they can teach believers they have assurance too; and give good news to unbelievers (eternal security the moment you believe); and don’t have to spend their time counselling members “have i lost my salvation this week?”

      Troy Day So connecting with people over food is out of the question? If you dont get to know people, how can you truly lead them

    Generally speaking the church takes on the character of the pastor. His message and vision.
    If the pastor gets in the floor and prays before God his people will grow in grace and the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ
    If the pastor is cold and mean the people judgmental and be stingy.

      How can a pastor stop himself from influencing his congregation with his ” personal opionion?””
      It is impossible.Most preachings and teachings are laced with the preachers and teachers perdonal opinions..
      Subtle control, manipulation and intimidation is always there…
