God made us in His image, but He knows we have been marred by the fall. He longs for us to experience the freedom and beauty of such holiness, and He plans to return us there. He wants to return us to holiness. To conform us to the image of His Son. But how does this process work?
History is littered with supposed Christian leaders who brought great dishonor to God. Believers are shocked, and the world mocks God when sinful behaviors are uncovered from those we have looked to as spiritual leaders. (And they always will be disclosed because a lack of integrity always manifests itself. Always.)
