2. You are well-versed in the rules and regulations of your church. It's always amazing to me how a mean leaders can fast-talk all the rules of the church, but can't give one scripture on a particular subject if their life depended on it! Jesus was very clear in Mark 7:13 when He told the Pharisees that their rules and regulations have made God's word of no effect. This needs to send a resounding message to leaders who lead mean ministries—your traditions that are producing spiteful Christians have chased out the Holy Spirit! When you hold up your "man-made" rules higher than God's Word, you will be ineffective in all you do. Yes, there might be some element of success, but never God's best. Don't be this kind of a leader!
