Shows Main Idea – When a leader (a pastor) falls, the church (in general) bags him up and throws him out. Can you comment on how to respond to a fallen Christian leader?
Listen to the podcast
Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. – Galatians 6:1-3
