A person asked "I noticed on one of the blogs where someone referred to her pastor's wife as "The First Lady" [of her church]. Does the use of the title set the pastor's wife in a special position in the Church that the Bible does not give her?" Here are some peoples answers " I don't think there is anything anti-scriptural about it. We are to give honor where honor is due, and most pastor's wives are co-labourers with their husbands for the gospel. There is nothing wrong with honoring them, and showing them respect" "Those ladies have a hard, busy life. Double honour is due them." "To whom is honor really due? Why do we insist on putting other humans up on pedestals? It's a form of idolatry. To whom is honor due and what exactly does the scripture mean by "honor?" "When did the title "First Lady" creep into "The Black Church"? If not mistaken  that's a  title once reserve for  the president wife.....That title have been miss used in almost all of our Black Churches.... I am not saying that there's anything  wrong  with a pastor wife being called that ...But, isn't that an improper title being used in an improper way? Why should the pastor wife be put above other women in the church? So does that make her better than the other hard working women in the church? To me by doing this it can cause problems within the church....Me personally I don't like it. Isn't that putting focus on special people when Jesus should be all the focus..Am I the only one that does not like this?....Is every one else OK with it ? What do you think? Isn't Michell Obama the only 1st lady in America?What ever happen to the title sister and brother? -Listen as Bro. Glover gives some insights.
