A true leader of God must & will bring credit, honor & respect to the Lord Jesus Christ in ALL of these 5 areas :
His beliefs & teachings will always exalt & point to Christ Jesus as Savior & Lord & as the divine Son of God according to scriptures.
[Today, believers fall into the trap of believing that anyone who throws the name of "Jesus" around & has a Bible opened in front of him or her, must be a true leader of God. Believers forget that even the devil can quote & teach scriptures & can even prophesy.] [Acts16:16,17].
speech, (godly & respectful / not flippant & worldly as we see today)
behavior, (godly & respectful / not unbecoming & worldly as we see today)
a moral & pure personal & public life (no drinking, smoking, carousing, deceitful dealings or immoral conduct; must have only 1 wife, etc..)
his attitude towards others will show kindness, humility, respect & patience at all times. ( not the arrogant, insensitive & disrespectful attitude which we see expressed alot today by so-called Christian leaders.)
Christ's "love for one another" (best shown in kindness, respect & humility towards all others, even our enemies) is what the Lord Jesus said would ultimately "prove that we are His disci- ples". [ John 13:34,35 ] [ Love: more >> ]
It must be stressed again that if any so-called leader fails in even 1 of these above areas, then he is UNQUALIFIED to represent himself as a 5-Fold Leader of God in front of the body of Christ. He must qualify in ALL 5 areas.
Paul called it "being above reproach" which he said a leader or overseer "must be". [ I Tim.3:2 ]. In fact, Paul said that unless a man is "above reproach", then he does not even qualify for a "deacon" position in the church not to mention becoming a 5-Fold minister in charge of overseeing God's flock.
[ I Tim.3:10 ].
Today's TV Ministers in America...
Many of today's so-called "leaders of God" in America fail Paul's 1st requirement of being "above reproach" (v.2) right off the bat. Their attitude, speech and/or behavior is in no way reflective of the humility & kindness of the Lord Jesus' attitude, speech & behavior.
Today's pulpit ministers largely demonstrate an arrogant, disrespectful & worldly attitude coupled with behavior which is unbecoming. Paul speci- fied that Christ's true love "is not arrogant" & "does not act unbecomingly" & "does not brag" as we see largely in today's ministers. (ICor.13: 4-8). Therefore, many of today's so-called mini- sters are failing in Christ's ultimate command- ment to demonstrate love in their speech, conduct & attitude towards others.
This makes them UNQUALIFIED for Leadership & not "above reproach" as the Apostle Paul instructed regardless of how well that particular person may be able to "teach" or "lead".
The next discernment of any minister who is recognized as being UNQUALIFIED would be to determine if that individual leader is truly a Christian or, in fact, a false man or woman of God altogether. This requires a deeper & more trained discernment according to Hebrews 5:14.
However, any believer who rightly discerns a so-called leader to be UNQUALIFIED & not "above reproach" in the aformentioned areas, then that believer has all the information nec- essary to avoid him as his "church leader".
What is the Bible criteria which determines a true prophet / man of God vs. a false prophet or a religious phony ?
Prophetically, it's time right now for God's people to begin knowing & handling accurately God's Word on His own Leadership requirements which qualify & confirm His true leaders.
I Timothy 3: 1-16 Leadership Requirements
The Apostle Paul laid out the strictest guidelines & requirements for any & every aspiring "leader" to unwaveringly adhere to. Paul's list was extensive & covered all details of a person & a person's life "so that you may know how one ought to conduct himself in the household of God."
Any so-called leader who fails in any 1 of these areas is, according to scripture, not qualified to represent himself in front of God's people.
