When I pastored a country church, a farmer didn't like the sermons I preached on hell. He said, Preach about the meek and lowly Jesus. I said, That's where I got my information about hell.

There are pastors who won't go to people's sick beds. How can people of God turn their back on the sick, poor and hungry?
James Robinson pastors quote

Thou, silent form, dost tease us out of thoughtAs does eternity: Cold Pastoral!When old age shall this generation waste,Thou shalt remain, in midst of other woeThan ours, a friend to man, to whom thou say'st,'Beauty is truth, truth beauty,' -- that is allYe know on Earth, and all ye need to know.
— John Keats

But, good my brother, do not, as some ungracious pastors do. Show me the steep and thorny way to heaven whilst like a puffed and reckless libertine himself the primrose path of dalliance treads and recks not his own rede.
— William Shakespeare

A man may be a heretic in the truth; and if he believe things only because his pastor says so, or the assembly so determines, without knowing other reason, though his belief be true, yet the very truth he holds becomes his heresy.
— pastors quotation by John Milton
