Brother Tittle, I have no objection to you using the title "Dr." in the medical profession, after all ... that is what you are. I think it would be dishonest and prideful for you to try and transfer that title into the pastorate. How about this one: I am very close to a man that has conferred UPON HIMSELF a doctorate of divinity ... and he tries to pass that title off in the medical field. A big fat lawsuit from the medical field, and he backed off a little. I see he is back to it again. How messed up is that!?

I use the title Dr. in some of my posts because not only am I a student of the scripture for the last 35-40 years and pastor of a local church congregation, I am also a licensed medical professional.
