Why do we think that Christians (mainly leaders) must be perfect and make no mistakes?
Seriously! I've never met a person on earth that never made a mistake and Jesus is the only One who has never sinned so where do we get off making it seem like pastors, evangelists, and other leaders must be perfect? It's stupid.
Very recently a somewhat prominent leader got into an issue. It's a big deal. But I've heard many people saying junk back and forth and I'm just like, seriously?!! We are all basically the Israelites who serve God for a time and then turn away in some shape, fashion, or form and head towards our wants and not His. How would you like it if every time you did something wrong a person came up to you and said, "Hey, you! Yeah, so I heard you did ________ and because of that I think you're an awful person and that whatever you get you deserve because you're a sinner!" NO ONE would like that! Guess who has the right to do that to you and me and yet refrains from doing so? Jesus Christ! We have forsaken Him more times than we probably know and yet He is there with outstretched arms picking us up and encouraging us back to Himself. Shouldn't we do the same with our brothers and sisters?
