“And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way” (Ephesians 1-22-23, NLT).

It’s common when someone in authority in a church makes a mistake or a poor decision for people to not only stop going to church, but turn their backs on God as well. This has always puzzled me as I learned a long time ago during a difficult time in my denomination that what the leaders do is no reflection on God.

Jesus is the head of the church no matter what the body does. If every church leader fails and every church shuts its doors, he remains the head of his body and will never let us down.
