Why do our Christian leaders disappoint us with their ethical failures? Why is it that we cannot seem to go a month without hearing of a respectable Christian leader who has committed adultery, or abusively berated their children or their employees, or coldly ignored poverty on their doorsteps while putting millions of dollars into their churches? I believe that the problem and the solution are in the same place – the Christian doctrine of man’s depravity. I hope you find resources for hope in what follows, as have I, that despite our ethical failures freedom and transformation are possible in the way of God as revealed in Scripture. This post also responds, I hope charitably, to the Calvinist critiques of Part I of those post, I Try to Be a Good Person, Isn't that Good Enough?
