“Leadership of God’s people can go disastrously wrong at the top, with the underlings being better but being too weak or afraid to effect the desperately needed change. Or leadership may be weak or corrupt throughout the hierarchy, with the top figure too indecisive or too much of a wimp to clean things up. Saddest of all are the Christian institutions where weakness or corruption prevails at both levels.”
D. A. Carson, “For the Love of God, Vol. 2,” August 10.
