LEADERS: Only Repent for Doing Wrong

I Love Correction

I may come across like a regular nerd, but I’m not the arguing type. I actually like being corrected, because it always makes me better. Like, my real life ALWAYS gets better after correction. But if you’re wrong, I literally can’t budge. God doesn’t let me even if I try to. And believe me I’ve tried to soften the truth more than once. He won’t allow it πŸ€·πŸΏβ€β™‚οΈ

One time a few years ago, God gave my wife a dream that I softened my stance on a particular teaching that she didn’t like. In the dream, I bowed down before her to keep peace. The next scene was me dead and she had to marry someone else.

So yeah, after she told me that dream, my choices in life became really easy. Obey God.

I invite you to keep the Commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.

When you do what Jesus instructed, people will hate you just like they hated Him.
Obey Jesus Anyway!

LEADERS: Only Repent for Doing Wrong

LEADERS:
ALWAYS repent for doing what’s wrong.
BUT ALSO:
NEVER repent for doing what’s right.

Repenting even when you do what’s right may seem like a smart way to be humble and get along with people… but it’s not.

It is submitting to a dangerous form of manipulation, from a dangerous type of subversive manipulator.

1. Repenting for Righteousness leads to filthiness and corruption taking over the domain you are serving. It changes your overall direction of purity and clarity into unclear iniquity.

Proverbs 25:26
[26]A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring.

2. Leaders are not even to receive sneaky accusations made without witnesses. Sometimes liars will say things in secret that they won’t say publicly because their lie will be seen more clearly in the light. That’s because the purpose of their lying accusation is to weaken you, not to correct you or help you do better.

1 Timothy 5:19
[19]Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.

1 Timothy 5:1
[1]Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren;

3. Sometimes Wise leadership is in scattering the wicked, not in submitting to their manipulative demands and false accusations.

Proverbs 20:26
[26]A wise king scattereth the wicked, and bringeth the wheel over them.

Isaiah 54:17
[17]No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.

LEADERS:
ALWAYS repent for doing what’s wrong. Reverse every iniquity, correct every error. Be honest, confess publicly, make amends, and bring fruits of repentance and restitution. Always be humble and be willing to grow.

BUT ALSO:
NEVER repent for doing what’s right. Stay strong and be obedient to the righteousness of the Instruction that God has given you. Don’t be afraid to lose those who would try to corrupt your way with false accusations. God will defend you against those that are sent by the devil to pervert the right ways of the Lord!

Acts 13:6-10
[6]And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Barjesus:
[7]Which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God.
[8]But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith.
[9]Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him,
[10]And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?
