Should Elders/Pastors be Disqualified by Unbelieving Children?

There is an excellent series being written over at the Expository Thoughts blog called "Children who Believe". Matt Waymeyer is doing a great job of working through the texts and being faithful to the exposition of the scripture. I like very much the Pastoral approach and clear and concise way that Matt is presenting his argument. I believe this is a subject that every Pastor should have reconciled before entering ministry, - if you have never done an exposition of this, I can't commend to you enough to read and think through Matt's work.

"First Timothy 3:4-5 indicates that the fatherÂ’s faithfulness in the home is a testing ground for how faithful he will be in managing the flock at large. Two fathers could be equally faithful in their parenting, and yet one might have a son who is elect and the other a son who is not. In this case, the second father would be disqualified even though he was no less faithful and capable than the first father."
