The world is full of megalomaniacs. I saw another one in operation this weekend. It freaks me out. They are in all walks of life, not just the church. These people find their way to the front of the group. They find their way onto the stage. They find their way into leadership positions. But that’s just the half of it. The other half is we give them our permission. They are there because we put them there.
Like this guy. He’s a megalomaniac. But, like all megalomaniacs, he employs some higher value to validate his amazingness.
The gospel stories suggest that Jesus lived and gave examples of a different kind of leadership that was fuelled by love, freedom and service.
It is still trying to be understood 2,000 years later.
