I was recently visiting the ChurchLeaders.com blog and read an article called Pastoral Plagiarism: 10 Do’s and Don’ts. It made me think about the issue of Pastoral Ethics. You may or may not have come across a pastor who has plagiarized a sermon or a series of sermons before. I know it happens not only from what I have read but also from what I have experienced indirectly.
