On a Minister’s Integrity

From Preventing Ministry Failure by Michael Todd Wilson and Brad Hoffmann:

Ministry for leaders lacking integrity is simply another act in the performance of holiness–walking, talking dressing, acting and responding in the clergy way. Unfortunately, some religious communities create a set of establish “spiritually correct” behaviours that actually discourages real integrity in leadership. This is done by placing hyper-focus on a half-dozen or so “super sins” and effectively ignoring the rest. Those successful at abstinence from the super list are publicly praised as models of integrity–regardless of how far off the mark the rest of their lives might be.
