R.C. Sproul on Preachers and Faithfulness to the Word

In his book, The Holiness of God, R.C. Sproul makes a statement on preachers and their faithfulness to the Word of God. It’s humbling and frightening. Here’s the quote:

Ministers are noteworthy of their calling. All preachers are vulnerable to the charge of hypocrisy. In fact, the more faithful preachers are to the Word of God in their preaching, the more liable they are to the charge of hypocrisy. Why? Because the more faithful people are to the Word of God, the higher the message is that they will preach. The higher the message, the further they will be from obeying it themselves.1
