The pastor is called to feed the sheep, even if the sheep do not want to be fed. He is certainly not to become a entertainer of goats. Let goats entertain goats, and let them do it out in goatland. You will certainly not turn goats into sheep by pandering to their goatishness. Do we really believe that the Word of God, by His Spirit, changes, as well as maddens men? If we do, to be evangelist and pastors, feeders of sheep, we must be men of the Word of God.
―William Still, The Work of the Pastor
