Pastor's Daughters

Someone help me understand this: why does anyone believe that Preacher’s Daughters is something that they want to participate in?

This originally came to our attention by way of a Daily Mail article that discusses how one of the fathers (who happens to be a pastor) demanded that his daughter take a paternity test when he learns that there is uncertainty as to the father of of his unwed daughter’s child. The show, if you haven’t yet heard of it, premiered last night on Lifetime, and follows three young women who are growing up in a ministry home. Following in the footsteps of TLC’s The Sisterhood the show goes after the most sensational stories that they can find within the family.

In this edition of Minsitry Briefing, Todd and Matt talk about the show, and why someone would take part in it… perhaps you can help us understand:

Is there any kind of redemptive potential in this kind of thing?

    Is it possible that the world needs to see that we have real problems? Maybe the world needs to see that storms hit our houses just like it does theirs.So many times we leaders just put on the plastic faces and images. Just think someone may see this who is having similar issues and consider the church for answers. You know maybe they can relate with where I’m at…

      What are real problems??? Since when did behaving like the world and living in sin become the definition of being real??? Is living in RIGHTEOUSNESS not being REAL??? Should we show Christians struggling in their walk with Christ??? Absolutely. However, these shows perpetuate the stereotypes of Christians and sensationalize the fall and mistakes of our Christians brothers and sisters. These shows do not show Christians falling and then getting back up. These shows simply show Christians in PURE rebellion and confusion. If these shows TRUY wanted to be OBJECTIVE they show Christians on both ends of the spectrum, but they do not. Their motives are clear!!!!…#givemeJESUS

    We know pastors have problems just like anyone, but I think it is a stretch to have a preacher’s daughter yearning to be a porn star. Not a pop star but a porn star. This is ridiculous and totally made for tv. The participants in this sham need to be ashame of themselves. I am a PK and to bring church into this reality mess is simply not good.

    As a pastor and having a daughter, NO, we don’t need to participate in this, and I won’t watch it either. I hate that this is promoting the stereotype that our pastor kids have to be rebellious or sinful, etc. What kind of message are we sending our girls? Thank God I have a good relationship with my daughter and the ministry hasn’t turned her off from the church, though when she was younger we went through a horrible experience and I was worried it would scar her. But she loves the church and sees it as her family. Why should we even put it in someone’s head that these kids have to be something like this? Also as pastors we need to make sure our family is our first ministry and that our lives are connected iwth them so that we don’t give the enemy a foothold. Temptations and trials of this world are hard enough without giving an open door to the enemy! Praying for all the pastor’s kids (boys and girls included)!
