Over the last several years, we’ve seen the fall of several prominent, public Christian leaders. Some have fallen into adultery. Some have been accused of pride and arrogance and loving money. Some have left the faith. Most recently, we learned that a famous apologist had cultivated a secret lifestyle of heinous, habitual sin prior to his death in May of 2020. How should Christians think about the fall of these leaders? Can we have assurance of our own salvation? Should these leaders be restored to ministry? Was it possible to recognize warning signs before these men fell publicly? All these questions and more will be answered in today’s With All Wisdom Podcast.
