Dangers Christian leaders (including church leaders and pastors) need to steer clear of (non-exhaustive and not in order of importance):

1. Subtle and sometimes hidden crave for power and control

2. Putting one’s agenda above God’s

3. Not taking the longer and more uncomfortable route of seeking God for His purposes and hearing from Him resulting in leading from the flesh

4. Desire for adulation of man instead of the pleasure of God

5. Entering into relationships that result in politicking and manipulation

6. Lust of the flesh (including material things and sexual temptations)

7. Passing of half truths as truths

8. Compromised personal Bible study and communion with God

9. For public speakers, making someone else’s words our own (plagiarism)

10. Love and friendliness only towards the influential and wealthy and not towards the regular folks
