I’ve been noticing some awfully thin lines recently.
Like there are thin lines between:
Spiritual passion and mental instability.
Doctrinal purity and judgmental hypocrisy.
Social justice ministry and works without faith.
National / Regional pride and idolatry.
Attention to detail and obsessive compulsion.
Having a “prophetic ministry” and being a jerk to the congregation you serve.
Having a “pastoral ministry” and being an enabler to the congregation you serve.
Sarcasm and cruelty.
Confidence and arrogance.
Open minds and empty heads.
