It is a reminder to me that I do not understand God. I do not understand His honoring and using those who mangle His words so badly and by extension teach others to do the same. I do know that pattern happened in the emerging Church. Apollos came to Ephesus and taught in the synagogue. His message was not quite on target. Priscilla and Aquila took him aside and corrected him, Acts 18:24 – 28. Paul confronted Peter in Galatia, Galatians 2:11 – 21. Error existed in the teaching of the early church. Error made by men with good hearts. They were corrected.
There are two take aways for me here. First, just because I revere a person, I am required to check what they say against the Word of God, and if they seem to be mistaken to engage with them if that is appropriate and God grants opportunity. Second, God can use men who are flawed with flawed messages to expand His kingdom. So I need to look at these messages with that grace in mind.
There is probably a third. We are all flawed.
