Ephesians chapter four explains the necessity of the work of a true pastor

In Ephesians chapter four we find the description of ministering gifts the Holy Spirit gave to the church. These gifts are to be manifested in the church especially as we get closer to the second coming. All these gifts are given for the same reasons and are important to the saints. These reasons as stated below, are for the perfecting of the saints, the work of the ministry, edifying of the body of Christ, etc. Because there are so much corrupt pastors, that does not mean that pastoral care in a church is not needed by the saints or used by God, the solution is to have pastors who will fulfill their Biblical job description. The current sad state of the saints is ample evidence to show us that pastors who are true to their duty, is what the church need. It is time for God’s people to understand the importance of true shepherds and stop sitting under false shepherds and then bemoaning the sad state of the church, you will never grow spiritually while listen to and trusting your care to a false guide.
Ephesians 4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
4:12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
4:13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
4:14 That we [henceforth] be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, [and] cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
4:15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, [even] Christ:
4:16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
