PK Life

Our pastor asked pastors’ kids on Facebook to share what they loved and or hated about being PKs. Some of the responses were traumatizing.

The Gospel is not Jesus (or your dad) saying “Be perfect or you’ll embarrass me and incur my wrath.” What an unattainable and demeaning goal! This attitude among some in the church that holiness is a result of gritting our teeth and powering through really discourages me. Jesus is our perfection; it’s never a result of our behavior. Anything we can achieve on our own is not good enough. If it was, why would we need a savior?
