Therefore an overseer must be above reproach. 1 TIMOTHY 3:1–2 The nobility of
the pastoral office demands a correspondingly noble character. Churches must
therefore seek men whose inner and outer lives are sewn together by integrity
and Christlikeness. Paul lists “above reproach” as the second characteristic an
elder must possess. “Above reproach” serves as an umbrella for all the other
requirements that follow. A man must be blameless in his outward conduct,
upright and ...

(The Reformed Pastor [Edinburgh: Banner of Truth, 1979], 63, 6768) Anepil
ēmptos (above reproach) means “not able to be held.” The man whois above
reproach cannot be arrested and held as if he werea criminal; there is nothing for
which to accuse him. InTitus 1:6, the same idea of being above reproach is
conveyed, but a different term (anengklōtos—“unreprovable”) is used. The
present participle einai (be) indicates he is in a present state of being above
reproach. Obviously ...

He should be a man above reproach in every regard. As to the under officers,
next to the warden they come in contact with the prisoner, and my observation
was that the character of the man, the officer in the prison, as I indicated to you a
moment ago about the good prisoner, a good officer in the shop always had a
marked effect. I would say the under officers ought to be intelligent men and
above reproach, commanding the respect of the prisoners with whom they come
in contact, and ...

He not only knows the Bible, but earnestly labors to obey it. When hypocrisy
corrupts a man's life, his wife finds it difficult to respect him. When our children
see a duplicitous lifestyle in us, acting one way at church and another at home,
they want less to do with our religion. Unbelievers leverage our hypocrisy as one
more excuse to summarily dismiss the claims of Christ. What they all need to see
in us is character. To be a man of character is to be above reproach, a person of
integrity, ...

Being a one-woman man really refers to being committed to one's wife. The man
who has the ability and practice of being committed to his wife may be able to be
committed to the bride of Christ—the church. Personal Qualifications 1. Above
reproach. It is possible that this qualification is an umbrella under which all of the
others fall. To be above reproach certainly does not mean that the man has never
made mistakes. Peter called himself a “fellow elder” (1 Peter 5:1), but at one time

Checklist for Choosing Church Leaders 1 TIMOTHY 3:1-7 1It is a trustworthy
statement: if any man aspires to the office of aoverseer, it is a fine work he desires
to do. 2aAn overseer, then, must be above reproach, the husband of one wife,
temperate, prudent, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not addicted to wine
aor pugnacious, but gentle, peaceable, free from the love of money. 4He must be
one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control

But as Brother Martin said upon our first meeting, I am no savior. I am only a man.
I am glad. I have no desire to see the Papacy destroyed. I do, however, believe
that the office has become corrupted—as if somehow above reproach, and, as
such, requires re-examination. No man is above reproach, and none can benefit
from a lack of accountability. I pray for the Pope often, and I have no interest in his
demise. Oh yes, my friend, to be sure. I think about my days at the abbey quite
often.

Wallander was also doubtful for quite different reasons.He had spent his life in
the loyal and unhesitating belief that Swedish business practices were as above
reproach as the emperor's wife.The men and women at the top of the big
Swedish concerns were the bedrock of the welfare state. The Swedish export
industry was at the heart of the country's prosperity, and as such was simply
above suspicion. Especially now, now that the whole edifice of the welfare state
