The expression “man of God” has come to mean a self-appointed apostle, prophet or pastor—someone who claims special powers and is above accountability. So often such men (and even women!) control their followers through fear and intimidation. They have become like an assistant god, and to be blessed you must come through them. But you do not need a special pastor or apostle for God to hear you! Rodgers Atwebembeire explains from Scripture.
