Complementarianism’s Bromance with Modernism, Part 2

A twee from Al Mohler promoting the male-marketed T4G Conference in 2016. @albertmohler
  1. Restless: Spiritual leaders have a holy discontentment with the status quo. Leaders have a hankering to change, to move, to reach out, to grow, and to take a group or an institution to new dimensions of ministry.
  2. Thick-Skinned: If you begin to lead others, you will be criticized. No one will be a significant spiritual leader if his aim is to please others and seek their approval. Spiritual leaders do not seek the praises of men. They seek to please God. If criticism disables us, we will never make it as spiritual leaders.
  3. A Hard Thinker: A leader must be one who, when he sees a set of circumstances, thinks about it. He tests all things with his mind and holds fast to what is good.
  4. Organized and efficient: A leader does not like clutter. He likes to know where and when things are for quick access and use. His favorite shape is the straight line, not the circle. He groans in meetings that do not move from premises to conclusions but rather go in irrelevant circles. When something must be done he sees a three-step plan for getting it done and lays it out…He sees ways to use time to the full and shapes his schedule to maximize his usefulness.
