A pastor’s viral church rant — and his subsequent apology — have gone viral.

As The Christian Post’s Leonardo Blair reported[1] of the incident: “A Missouri pastor has apologized after a video clip in which he threw a spiritualized tantrum from the pulpit and called his congregation ‘broke, busted and disgusted’ and ‘cheap sons and daughters’ for not ‘honoring’ him with a watch from the luxury brand Movado went viral.”

The incident has sparked questions about[2] pastoral behavior and maturity, grace, and much more, both within the church and in the secular world.

How are people reacting — and how should believers respond? Read the story in its entirety here[3] and listen to Blair break it all down on The Inside Story[4]brought to you by The Christian Post:
