Zeely Bridge to Teribithia Consider the context of these brief sentences.
John Crowe These statements seem to praise a pastor superstar type person that congregations often expect and many pastors burn out trying to live up to. Both Spurgeon and Martin Luther experienced a lot of pain during their entire ministry for they both fought depression. Unlike many clergy who fight with depression in our day, Luther had no problem speaking about it or writing about it in his day.
Really…because the very last one talks about respecting what no one sees. Pastors are expected to be perfect, heaven help them if they admit to more than a superficial flaw.
The bible ye shall know them by their fruits. It is all about Him who suffered and died for ALL of us. If we think that we are sick then He HAS healed us.
If we think that we are better off than others then He died for all those others. Who was it that was spat on, who was it that IS innocent? We are all under His Lordship not matter where we stand nor what we preach or witness.

It is all I can do. So I would love to know that those who are close to God could respect me, not for putting up the perfect pastor image, but the committed servant of Christ even when things in my life are broken.
