A Christian leader who thinks that the people with whom they minister only need more biblical, theological, and ethical teaching and content has failed to recognize that, to be properly taught, truth must be modeled.
the Word of God is profitable for teaching, FOR REPROOF, FOR CORRECTION, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. — 2 Timothy 3:16 (ESV)
The kisses of an enemy may be profuse, but faithful are the wounds of a friend. — Proverbs 27:6 (ESV)
