Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: James 1:19

Beware of the flood of would-be masters who will not be disciples.It is Oxymoronic/Paradoxical to find those who are resistant to authority yet they wish to be authoritative; to encounter those who refuse to follow leadership yet wish to lead others.
