Is this the position of a humble servant of God or of a wolf backed into a corner? I’m just asking.
“Murmurs of wanting to replace Steve as senior minister swung a huge wrecking ball toward his dreams of heading a vast megachurch. She made the blunder of showing compassion for Steve’s mother and family while asking that he leave his position. Steve, obviously threatened, stood and walked toward my side of the stage. With a glare, he
proceeded to accuse BK of the very thing he was about to do. Steve’s elevation was about three feet higher than the rest of us; he moved right to the edge of the stage, leaning slightly forward in a posture of power as he towered over the crowd. I’d seen that look countless times in marital “discussions” between my ex-husband and me. I was familiar with the stance that implied: “I am bigger, stronger and more powerful than you, and you will hear me.” Mental alarms sounded as I listened to the following interplay.” (Taylor, Joy S., A View from the Pews — The Inside Story of a Broken Church, 2022, Lily of the Valley Publishing, Santa Claus IN, p. 93.)
