There are some preachers, theologians, pastors whom I appreciate very much for their faithful and effective ministry. There are some that I love very dearly.
But I am against making too much deal out of them for two reasons.
One is because I fear to rob God of His glory by making much fuss about His servants.
The other is because I love those faithful Gospel ministers and I do not want them to be brought down, even be destroyed by my idolisation of them.
Read this post by Carl Trueman and be careful how you love your favourite preacher.
