Dr. Title Misleading For Pastor
Personally I think that it is arrogant of a pastor to let people know his educational status. God does not look at the amount of time that a person has spent at university or the number of degrees that they have, but rather looks at our hearts. I have always (even as a young child) viewed it as extremely distasteful to put one's doctoral title in front of one's name (unless it is an MD in a work setting), especially when pastors do it. To me it seems as a not so subtle way of demanding respect of those around them and displays either pride or some sort of inferiority complex. Pastors should be humble and should not worry about who knows their educational status, it is simply not important to God.
