From Gordon MacDonald on CT.com commenting about Ted Haggard:
The cardinal lies of a failed leader? I give and give and give in this position; I deserve special privileges—perhaps even the privilege of living above the rules. Or, I have enough charm and enough smooth words that I can talk anything (even my innocence) into reality. Or, so much of my life is lived above the line of holiness that I can be excused this one little faux pas. Or, I have done so much for these people; now it's their time to do something for me—like forgiving me and giving a second chance.
Leaders have to continue in holiness. There is no place for excuses. This is an important reminder when temptation comes.
