This show does not lift up Jesus. Therefore it's most likely not going to lead any one to Christ. The network that airs this show is only after good ratings and money. The church the body of Christ must realize our real purpose and stop going after the things of this world . We must Aim at and seek the rich eternal riches that are above where Christ is seated. We must pursue God to become more like him and not stuff. So that people who are lost can come to know Jesus as Lord and savior.

Why should the role of Pastor wife tied up in the Pastor, what happen to her relationship with Abba? We should view her only by her relationship with Abba which defines how she relates to everyone else. Is she a faithful follower. Let her be true and humble herself under the mighty hand of Abba. Let them take off the mask of being so needed. Let the anointing of Abba whatever it is be hers. Stop expecting anything else than what we should expect of all other believers which is righteousness and that she is equally yoked to her husband. The husband's must know if their wives are equally yoked other wise he need to start praying and waiting on Abba to deliver them. These young women need the older women to teach them.

S Griffin, I think Tim Fall's point was that there is no Biblical precedent (thus, no reason) for calling pastors' wives First Ladies. I have attended black churches where that did not happen. I have also attended a black church whose pastor is a woman, and her husband is not called the First Gentleman. It is also true that not all of the women in this TV show are black. Two of them are Caucasian.

Tim Fall, you do realize that in black churches the pastor's wife is referred to as the "First Lady"? Not sure when it started but that's how it's been since I was a child. You also have a "Church Mother" who is the oldest mother in the church.

Having watched a few of these episodes and praying for these women (and their husbands and churches) as I did so, I have to agree with Jim Ricker. It saddens me to see such blatant (and not only accepted, but even expected) materialism in these families and churches. The "kingdom" statements some of these women make seem to imply that they are above reproach -- I don't see much humility here. One husband/former pastor said something to the effect of "You haven't been married until the law has been called to your house." Really??? The pastor's wife who wanted a ritzy bachelorette party before she and her husband renewed their vows, and proceeded to come on to strange men during it, before she looked up her former pimp (I'm not kidding) almost took the cake. But, really, the worst thing of all seems to be the hateful attitudes/downright cattiness among these women. I don't see any "sister" relationships at all -- mainly what seems to be rivalries. It's beyond sad.
