Ego Maniacs On The Loose

Living for God - Ego Maniacs On The LooseLiving for God ~

The other day I came across a quote from A.W. Tozer that really made me think. Here's an extract from it:

"Egotism, exhibitionism and self-promotion are strangely tolerated in Christian leaders....I trust it is not a cynical observation to say that they appear these days to be a requisite for popularity in some sections of the church. Promoting self under the guise of promoting Christ is currently so common as to excite little notice."

Wow. How sad - but true! Have we turned into a celebrity driven faith? It's an easy trap for anyone in ministry to fall into. I've even struggled with it myself. But honestly, is this how we want to portray Christianity to the world? Let's contrast this image with the genuinely holy people of the past. They merely served God, often in obscurity and difficult circumstances. But such an unassuming and selfless devotion truly reflects Christ.

What do you think?
