Pastors and leaders are supposed to be examples to the flock. They are not to be an Ananias, Hymenaeus, Philetus, Diotrephes, committing sexual sin, or indulging in other sins. If they are guilty of a pattern of sin, God wants us to follow the principles of church discipline as outlined in Matthew 18: 15-20 and attempt to restore our leaders and pastors, as well as any believer to holiness.
