Are you willing to believe despite criticism?
Have you heard of John Kirby or Alexander Garden? What about Bishop Lavington? There might be a few who recognize these men, but most would not. Perhaps you are familiar with Shaphat and Igal? Most likely, you are not. Interestingly, each of these individuals was a critic of their peers and generally, people don’t remember critics. Sadly, some critics would not have any kind of ministry if they didn’t live to criticize others.
