Message: “I Love Jesus, But Hate (Some) Church Leaders” from Rev. Wendy Miller Olapade

Rev. Wendy Miller Olapade - September 27, 2020

I Love Jesus, But Hate (Some) Church Leaders

Most every time someone has been hurt by the church (and that has happened – a lot!) it has been because some church “leader” has fallen prey to some form of ego, sex, money, or power. It started at the beginning and has been causing folk to run from the church ever since! In 1 Timothy 3, Paul emphasizes leadership and the well-ordering of the church as the “pillar and buttress of the truth.” So why is it so hard for church folk to be servants that build-up God’s Body and a source of strength for Jesus’ followers?

Scripture References: 1 Timothy 3:1-16

Gandhi famously quipped, “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” Gandhi stands in good company: the world is full of people who like Jesus very much but can’t stand the people who follow him – and for good reason! This four-week series uses the letters Paul wrote to his friend Timothy to examine places where Jesus’ followers sometimes miss the mark.
