    1.A PASTOR THAT DOES NOT TALK ABOUT SIN BUT WRAPS HIS MESSAGE ALWAYS ON HAPPINESS,JOY AND SAYS GOD IS ALWAYS MERCIFUL TO FORGIVE SINNERS.

    2.A PASTOR THAT 99% OF HIS MESSAGES ARE ABOUT THINGS OF THE WORLD-PROPERTY,MANSIONS,CARS E.T.C.IF HE WANTS TO GIVE TESTIMONY ABOUT PROOF OF HIS MINISTRY,IT IS ABOUT THE LATEST CARS,HOUSES,CLOTHES OR PLACES HE HAS VISITED.

    3.A PASTOR THAT DOES NOT TALK ABOUT HEAVEN AND DOESN'T DIRECT PEOPLES HEART TO GOD AND ONLY PREACHES GOD AS A FATHER CHRISTMAS.HIS MESSAGE IS ONLY ON WHAT GOD CAN DO FOR YOU AND NOT YOUR OWN RESPONSIBLITY TO GOD.HE DOESN'T TELL YOU TO REPENT AND GET OUT OF YOUR UNGODLINESS AND DO WHAT IS RIGHT.

    4.A PASTOR WHOSE EVERY SERMON ENDS IN OFFERING AND RAISING MONEY.HE SEES COFFIN AND TELLS PEOPLE TO REDEEM IT WITH MONEY SO THAT THE PERSON WILL NOT DIE.

    5.A PASTOR WHOSE MEMBERS LIVE VERY UNRIGHTEOUS LIVES IN PRIVATE AND IN PUBLIC.

    There's a list that includes criticism that the pastor doesnt maintain a freezer filled with food at the church to be freely distributed.

    I realize that not every pastor is described in Francis Akin John's list but all need prayer.

    "I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;" I Tim 2

    Since the emphasis is false prophets, assuming there's an understanding of Godly prophets?

    Suggesting a study about the words we speak or attitudes towards others or whom we are to pray for or judging others. Yes, Scripture says judge also includes "For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again." Matt 7:2

    Got enough going on, I dont need to bring more on my own self.

    God is merciful and forgives sinners.
    All church services I've been in have a time of confession of sin followed by assurance of forgiveness. If we confess our sins to God, he forgives us and we have a new start; to then have a sermon on sin or wickedness may be counterproductive.
    Besides, there are great debates about what sin is. You only need to read these forums to find people who say that obeying the Jewish law/wearing certain kinds of clothing/drinking alcohol/not observing the Sabbath/not using the KJV/not tithing/having hobbies/enjoying "secular" music/ordaining women etc etc is a sin. Hearing someone else say that something that I do, or enjoy, is a sin, would not make me feel convicted and closer to God; that is the Spirit's job, not the preacher's.
