If I Were The Devil . . .

Because Satan knows that fallout is widespread when leaders crumble, he always aims his arrows at those who lead God’s church.  He wins, at least temporarily, when failings –whether among laity or staff – distract the church from doing the Great Commission. Were I the enemy, here is how I would attack leaders today.

  1. I would attack those who are most gifted . . . by reminding them that they are gifted.  Seldom does the enemy attack so blatantly that his attack is undeniable – especially when striking leaders so gifted that they think they are impenetrable to attack. Gifted leaders rarely settle for second place in anything; hence, they often refuse to believe that they can lose spiritual battles.  Such subtle arrogance sets them up for defeat.
  2. I would encourage leaders to talk about accountability . . . but not be personally accountable to anyone.  Few leaders would deny the importance of accountability, even if they themselves are accountable to no one.  After all, leaders lead from their strengths – and who needs accountability for his strengths?  And what leader is willing to risk his leadership by admitting his weaknesses?  Accountability that is just a buzzword, though, is only a wasted word.
