It is a shame when Bible terms are not used in Bible ways. Not long ago, I read of a university associated with churches of Christ use the word "pastor" in a way that is in accordance with the religious world, but not in the way the Scripture uses the word. Those in position of leadership and teaching, if they don't know how to use Bible terms in Bible ways, what are our youth being taught?

A "pastor" in biblical terminology is an "elder", "bishop", "presbyter", or "overseer" (different words for the same work). It is a not a preacher, but a married man (serving with other men) with faithful children leading the congregation of the Lord's people.

If a church uses the word "pastor" to refer to the preacher, that church is not using a biblical term in a biblical way.
