But a church should never place a man into church leadership based on his
desire alone. The church is responsible to affirm a man's qualifications for
ministry by measuring him against God's standard for leadership, as delineated
in verses 2–7. “ABOVE REPROACH”— HE IS A MAN OF U NQUESTIONABLE
CHARACTER Paul begins, “An overseer . . . must be above reproach” (v. 2). The
little word translated “must” (dei) emphasizes an absolute necessity: being above
reproach is an ...

In Proverbs 26:17, what is a man who meddles in someone else's quarrel
compared to? 16. There are some strong words recorded in Proverbs 25:17.
What do you think this means? C. Work with your hands "Now we ask you,
brothers, to respect those who work hard among you, who are over you in the
Lord and who admonish you." I Thessalonians 5:12 God sets the first example of
working in the Bible, during Creation: "By the seventh day God had finished the

The hall darkened and a vast light like the one over billiard tables came on above
thering. A man in a dinner jacket was speaking into a microphone, swinging the
trailing wire like a skipping rope. 'My lords, ladies and gentlemen,we have tonight
a programme which I feel sure...' 'Very formal isn'the, mydear‚' whispered Dinahin
stage cockney. I giggled and immediately regretted doingso. The roars
ofapplause that greeted thewrestlers madeit impossible to hear theirnames. I

Therefore an overseer must be above reproach. 1 TIMOTHY 3:1–2 The nobility of
the pastoral office demands a correspondingly noble character. Churches must
therefore seek men whose inner and outer lives are sewn together by integrity
and Christlikeness. Paul lists “above reproach” as the second characteristic an
elder must possess. “Above reproach” serves as an umbrella for all the other
requirements that follow. A man must be blameless in his outward conduct,
upright and ...

(The Reformed Pastor [Edinburgh: Banner of Truth, 1979], 63, 6768) Anepil
ēmptos (above reproach) means “not able to be held.” The man whois above
reproach cannot be arrested and held as if he werea criminal; there is nothing for
which to accuse him. InTitus 1:6, the same idea of being above reproach is
conveyed, but a different term (anengklōtos—“unreprovable”) is used. The
present participle einai (be) indicates he is in a present state of being above
reproach. Obviously ...

He not only knows the Bible, but earnestly labors to obey it. When hypocrisy
corrupts a man's life, his wife finds it difficult to respect him. When our children
see a duplicitous lifestyle in us, acting one way at church and another at home,
they want less to do with our religion. Unbelievers leverage our hypocrisy as one
more excuse to summarily dismiss the claims of Christ. What they all need to see
in us is character. To be a man of character is to be above reproach, a person of
integrity, ...

Checklist for Choosing Church Leaders 1 TIMOTHY 3:1-7 1It is a trustworthy
statement: if any man aspires to the office of aoverseer, it is a fine work he desires
to do. 2aAn overseer, then, must be above reproach, the husband of one wife,
temperate, prudent, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not addicted to wine
aor pugnacious, but gentle, peaceable, free from the love of money. 4He must be
one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control

But as Brother Martin said upon our first meeting, I am no savior. I am only a man.
I am glad. I have no desire to see the Papacy destroyed. I do, however, believe
that the office has become corrupted—as if somehow above reproach, and, as
such, requires re-examination. No man is above reproach, and none can benefit
from a lack of accountability. I pray for the Pope often, and I have no interest in his
demise. Oh yes, my friend, to be sure. I think about my days at the abbey quite
often.

He should be a man above reproach in every regard. As to the under officers,
next to the warden they come in contact with the prisoner, and my observation
was that the character of the man, the officer in the prison, as I indicated to you a
moment ago about the good prisoner, a good officer in the shop always had a
marked effect. I would say the under officers ought to be intelligent men and
above reproach, commanding the respect of the prisoners with whom they come
in contact, and ...
