A deformation is an abnormality caused by external forces; a malformation is an abnormality caused by internal forces. The Reformation came as a reaction against both!
1. Power.

Power is a dangerous thing! We often pray for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit… Do we know what we’re asking for? The Spirit comes with power…! What if the Spirit just gives power to someone who instead of allowing himself/herself to be used by the power would use and abuse that power?

Rightful power empowers the powerless. We are given Gospel/saving power! Not to out-power but to empower!
2. Position.

In the secular world, position means rank or status that gives you extra power. Some believe the same works in the church.

In Christ’s church there is no position in the sense of rank or status. If you think a church office is a position, you will tend to believe that when someone becomes a leader he/she got promoted… Spiritual leadership is not position, it is service!
3. Personality.

We often use personality as an excuse for abuse: it is my personality… Let me state this: being an abuser is not a matter of personality, it is a matter of pure-evil! And an abuse is an abuse no matter how charming your personality is.

In the Hebrew thinking faith is the same as faithfulness… In the Gospel of
Christ/God’s power, the righteousness of God is revealed from faithfulness to faithfulness…from His faithfulness into my faithfulness. His faithfulness to me gives birth to my faithfulness to Him! Modus operandi of God’s righteousness!
3. Personality.

We often use personality as an excuse for abuse: it is my personality… Let me state this: being an abuser is not a matter of personality, it is a matter of pure-evil! And an abuse is an abuse no matter how charming your personality is.

In the Hebrew thinking faith is the same as faithfulness… In the Gospel of
Christ/God’s power, the righteousness of God is revealed from faithfulness to faithfulness…from His faithfulness into my faithfulness. His faithfulness to me gives birth to my faithfulness to Him! Modus operandi of God’s righteousness!
Parents/teachers/church leaders: never ask for faithfulness without first being faithful! Please understand: When faithfulness is expected from someone without faithfulness being provided, that is an abuse of power, not righteousness.
