Paul Tripp’s story.

I mentor lots of pastors, and Paul Tripp’s story is not an unusual one, though many pastors are as clueless as Paul was.   I have not mentored Paul — just read his story.  We have come to expect/demand that our pastors be the together ones, and they had better not disappoint us, and this encourages them to — want to believe the lie, live in denial.  Everyone loses, especially the family.   Just because churches are growing, doesn’t mean they are growing by conversion growth.  Kingdom re-arrangement doesn’t require supernatural power, supernatural humility.  Human power will do.  Christian leaders are the weakest links in the Church being the Church — the ones most needy of further overhaul by Jesus, no matter how much He’s overhauled us to date.  Seems to me.

ask Jesus to grow you as the chief confessor in the home, not the chief accuser, or the chief expert on all things Christian.  If you unwittingly give them the impression that you’ve got this Christia
