12 Signs of a Controlling Church Pastor By Presbyter José Bosque

What I am about to write I pray is birthed in my love for His Church. I pray that it is motivated by the holy zeal that rises up in me when I see church leaders abusing those whom God has called. I pray that it is said clearly but with love for what is not birthed in love is sin.

As I survey the Present Day Christian Landscape everywhere you look there are wounded warriors. Sick and Evil people are everywhere too, but none can have such a profound effect on an up and coming Christian Leader, as the man whom he has placed his faith and trust in, his pastor.

An independent thinker with a profound call to see the orthodoxy of the church and passion for Christ manifesting together. Angel was born in Brooklyn, New York in April of 1968, he was raised on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico where he earned his B.S. degree in Sociology with a minor in Education from the Inter American University in San Germán in 1991. That same year he moved to Jacksonville, Florida. After working construction jobs for a year and learning the English language, his first job working with foster-care children in the capacity of youth care worker was with Jacksonville Youth Sanctuary in September of 1992. With JYS he was promoted several times as group home supervisor, legal caseworker, and program director. While in Jacksonville, Angel studied a couple of martial arts styles. After earning his black belt, he became the founder of Good Fight Ministries as he used martial arts as an instrument to preach the gospel. In 2004 Angel was selected Martial Arts Instructor of the Year for the State of Florida and in 2005 Angel was inducted in the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame where he also received the Christian Spirit Award. In July of 2005 Angel accepted his call to pastor a bilingual church in Winton, NC where he served for a couple of years. Five months later he lost his first wife to cancer in December of that same year. This initiated a deep valley of suffering in his life, a mountain of costly mistakes and the embracing of lifestyles of sin that are well documented through this blog. In August of 2012 Angel moved to Fairbanks Alaska with his wife Rayette Casiano and six children who are now adults. In Alaska, Angel continued his social work-related career and his ministry of preaching, teaching and writing. Angel is the author of two books, Hope for the divorcee: Forgiving and Moving Forward and 7 Banderas de Esperanza: La Bendición de Yokdzonot. In January 8th of 2020 Angel and his wife moved to Arizona.

  1. I go back to one of my favor people in the Bible; The Samaritan Woman. This woman had a real encounter with Jesus and even as she did not have much of nothing; terrible reputation, no seminary, no titles and no degrees, people follow her. She guided them to Jesus; they were hungry for Jesus and ask Him to stay a little longer. Where are we guiding people? To us? It is going to be a rude awakening! He did stay a couple of days and the people themselves stated that they now believe because of what they have heard directly from Jesus, more than what they heard from the Samaritan Woman. Did you see the Samaritan woman complaining anywhere? No! I believe with all of my heart in apostolic leadership and church government, but the best thing we can do is to teach people to talk to Daddy and to listen to what the Holy Spirit has to say; He is the true Teacher. But are we too afraid of what they will hear? The problem with these pastors is that they have so many credentials that they keep pointing at themselves. May God have mercy on their souls! We must pray for them; that is one of our great responsibilities! Some do not know any other way, but in Jesus name they will! The Samaritan woman pointed at Jesus! I love to listen to a good Word, but nothing, nothing… absolutely nothing like the sound of His voice even if He rebukes me. You want to be a good leader? Start by reading this article, repent, find God in your secret place, open yourself up for real relationships with Godly men, make yourself accountable, let your word be established with two or three witnesses and star pointing at Jesus. I guaranty you… This formula will never fail.
