From the book:
“My personal opinion from having gone through this experience is multidimensional. Steve Wingfield failed:
• His elders. He set himself above them and in total control of them.
Judging from their comments, it appears that he refused to submit to
their counsel. Instead, he used them as a protective posse to buffer
him from conflict. As one of the elders, Steve failed himself. In his
effort to protect his image, he eroded the respect and confidence he
might have had from his congregation.”
