Is there anyone qualified to actually lead on a big, huge, outsized level?
Reading and listening to a handful of Atheist and critics of God, and what is sticking out is a focus on the actions of individuals & organizations as a yardstick of what and who God is. Beyond that is either a lack of exposure to a true Christian or a willful disregard of those they have.
First to those of you that are setting yourselves up as leaders. Yes I’m sure you want to believe that God is calling you to be his servant. But if you cannot keep your hands off of a little boy’s butt, or a big girls boobs. If you can’t allow God to have all the praise and the money. Then trust me it’s not God “calling” you to be a leader. Maybe he’s telling you he wants’ to use you for good, but first you need to be good. If you aren’t doing what’s right, quit trying to lead when you are going the wrong way.
Now while you egotistical knuckleheads are stewing over that, the rest of us are going to point to Jesus as an example of what God is like. If we do not keep pointing at Jesus, the cross, and the empty tomb as what God is about and what people should be really looking at. Then we will not only have to answer to God for screwing up people’s lives, but also for trying to take his place.
Now some of you are all bent out of shape saying “Who are you to judge” or “Judge not that you be not judged” And I could get all snotty saying who am I not to. But instead let’s keep this civil, at least for the moment. Jesus, Paul & others made it clear that there would be false prophets, bad leaders, and plenty of “Wolfs in sheep’s clothing” Also stated multiple times is the concept of holding leaders to account, and finally that people will be known by their actions. Add in that only God is good.
If anyone is out there saying –look at me, look at me, look at me I would suggest, that is enough on its own to make them unfit to lead. The truth is you want to know what God is like look at Jesus, that’s where the answer is. If you must have a human representative, though not a guarantee, start with one who will say “Look at him, Look at him, Look at him
