Where is it in the Bible that no man shall wear the title of reverend but the Lord.


I personally do not like the title Reverend but instead prefer to be called pastor. Pastor simply means servant or shepherd where Reverend does carry with it a higher degree of acclimation which I personally do not want or feel is deserved.

The Bible does not specifically talk about not having the title of reverend but it does show on different occasions that it is wrong to worship someone.

Esther 3:2  And all the king’s servants, that were in the king’s gate, bowed, and reverenced Haman: for the king had so commanded concerning him. But Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence.

It is not wrong to have the title, but it is wrong to think too highly of oneself…look at Jesus who was the Son of God and He humbled Himself even to the death on a cross…Philippians 2:5-9   Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.  Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
