Church Leaders Are Losers

Throughout the stories that compose Christianity’s pedigree and history we are presented with the most unlikely cast of characters that are commissioned with the unrealistic expectations of God. At best, they are unremarkable and at the very least, completely unsuited and unqualified for what is eventually accomplished through them. What is common among all of these individuals is that by any standard we have to measure a person’s value to society, they would come up short. David, the first great king of Israel is, appeared to his contemporaries this way. He’s introduced as an unlikely opponent of the Philistine warrior Goliath. Goliath is everything we would bet on in a one on one duel. He’s a towering figure with all the confidence to suggest that he’s a formidable adversary.
