Integrity is crucial to the Christian ministry

JP: Worthwhile commentary on “Integrity”. As an aside, I was saved out of the liberal United Methodist Church back in 1969 and I’ve never looked back.

Integrity — What’s in a Word?


Sydney Biddle Barrows, the infamous “Mayflower Madam” convicted of running an elite prostitution service in the 1980s, once remarked, “I ran the wrong kind of business, but I did it with integrity.”

Misused in this way and employed as moral artifice, “integrity” is claimed where no real integrity can exist. There is no “integrity” in running a prostitution ring, and there is no integrity in defying ordination vows.
