I suppose the longest fall was a morning star that was once the most intelligent creature ever.

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?

No, it's not like that at all. It's not like the corrupt Catholic official is the rare exception while the corrupt Protestant preacher is the rule. There are good and bad preachers and officials, in small churches, large churches, so-called "mega" churches, and in the mother of all mega churches in Rome.

But you are right, no mortal is perfect, only Jesus is.
