How shall we describe the doom of an unfaithful minister?

“How shall we describe the doom of an unfaithful minister?  And every unearnest minister is unfaithful.  I would definitely prefer to be consigned to Tophet as a murderer of men’s bodies than as a destroyer of men’s souls; neither do I know of any condition in which a man can perish so fatally, so infinitely, as in that of the man who preaches a gospel which he does not believe, and assumes the office of pastor over a people whose good he does not intensely desire.  Let us pray to be found faithful always, and ever.  God grant that the Holy Spirit may make and keep us so.”
