Christian leadership is an honor, a yoke, and a crown. I have not always performed this privilege perfectly. I have made more than my share of mistakes. But I have learned that some things, which are better left unsaid, are often only spoken to get attention. Some Christian leaders must view themselves as the church equivalent of a rude comedian, choosing to say only those things which get them the most attention and create the most debate(buzz). When are the masses going to wise up and quit giving undue attention to the loudest and most vulgar in the church? It is time for Christian maturity to prevail and Biblical truth to be applauded.
I have recently seen quality, hard working, humble, Christian leaders torn apart and run off because they are not "edgy" enough. I
have recently seen "edgy", non-substantive, self-promoting, Christian leaders exalted to positions of high respect. It is more than a little bewildering to me.
It is my prayer that my God, who shut the mouths of lions and opened the mouths of donkeys; who opened the mouths of stutterers and shut the mouths of false prophets...would do this good work again so that the world can regain a confidence in men and women who are called to represent God in the world.
Godly leadership is needed today. Not the "edgy", self-serving, egotistical, "show". The devil has enough showmen. God doesn't
need any. Slick, luke-warm, used-car salesmen in church leadership make me throw up. In fact, the Bible says that they make God puke, also.
