The Cult of Personality & The Destruction of Real Leadership. How are we to tackle this?
Jun 03, 2020
Trinity Grace Church

In many Evangelical Churches, the ideal leader is the celebrity. We pick our leaders over their past business success, or maybe their ability to appeal to teens, or their "zip", "pazazz", "wow factor" etc. These qualifications are not bad in themselves, but they are all secondary and unimportant when compared to the qualifications given in Scripture. Whether or not the leader is a person of truth seems to slip the minds of an increasing number of Churches when choosing a Pastor. How are we to tackle this issue? How are we to make sure that our leaders uphold the whole counsel of God and qualify for biblical leadership according to what the Bible teaches? This issue is discussed throughout the podcast.
