What is happening to clergy in America?

It seems today that the church and its leaders are experiencing a genuine and increasing attack by Satan. Why is this? It might be due to stress or burnout in the lives of clergy, or it could just be carelessness. Whatever it is, it is sin and it must be addressed. What we have found most often is that moral or ethical failure can be partially categorized in three phrases.
  1. A lack of accountability and too much power.
  2. Unresolved conflict at home.
  3. Limited time spent along with God.
Failure to address any one of these three challenges can lead to great sorrow and ministerial failure.
