I can’t impress God. Some ministers are trying to impress us though. Jesus called it straight. Jesus knows the real deal when He sees it.
Character is all that counts. That is all there is to it. Jesus knows a lot about character. Jesus knows a fake when He sees them. Jesus knows what is in our heart.
We are too easily attracted to charisma. That doesn’t impress God at all. It should impress us either.
It isn’t what a minister says. It is who he is.
God knows. Just ask Him. God’s goal for us is to focus on the heart not how persuasive we say things.
Be wary of false preachers who smile a lot, dripping with practiced sincerity. Chances are they are out to rip you off some way or other. Don’t be impressed with charisma; look for character. Who preachers are is the main thing, not what they say. A genuine leader will never exploit your emotions or your pocketbook. These diseased trees with their bad apples are going to be chopped down and burned. Matthew 7:15-20
