People were created to love God and neighbor. They were created to care for and keep the world [Genesis 2:15]. To create flourishing. They were not created to sow power and reap abuse.
As we watch current events unfold we are seeing the results of narcissism in bold and deeply disturbing colors.
In these uncertain times, God is with us. With the release of preliminary reports regarding sexual abuse by international apologist, Ravi Zacharias, it is hard to recognize God's peace.
In the church we seem to have low standards for giving leadership and high standards for removal from that leadership.
A fundamental character trait of good leaders is humility. However, the church continues to create more James MacDonalds, James Bakkers, Mark Driscolls, Bill Hybels, Jerry Falwell Jrs....etc.
