Yeah, you’re right. Protestants don’t give up everything with vows of obedience either. Perhaps that makes ministry easier? I guess it’s similar to a Republican that gets embarrassed by having one extramarital affair compared to a Democrat who uses his government funded mansion for sex parties and prostitution. We really don’t expect much from Democrats as we do from Republicans. Is it a conservative’s fault for aiming further than his reach? I remember seeing an HBO special of a pimp preacher. The series was, “Pimps up, Ho’s down.” Seeing such a “reverend” made me wonder, “Is that you Jesse Jackson?” Just kidding.
But, that’s the cool thing about Jesus. We can know Jesus and compare all else that calls themselves His friend. Of course, no one mortal or created creature measures up to Jesus. Who’s like Jesus?
