A minister who excuse sin and lower the requirements of the Law is a false shepherd

In Malachi we find a clear outline of the work of a shepherd. A pastor should have God’s covenant of life and peace with him and it is to be displayed in his ministry. The “fear of the Lord” should be evident in his reverence for God and the things of God, and take special note that the pastor is not a reverend, and cannot be given any such title, but he reverence God. His preaching and his lifestyle should uphold the law of God. If a minister lowers the requirement of the law of truth, watch out, because he is living what he is preaching. Members of his church are to experience victories over iniquity. We notice in verse 7 a similar teaching about a pastor like what we read in Jeremiah yesterday. The shepherd lips should keep knowledge, in others words, not be a simpleton. And the members should seek the law at his mouth. We see clearly that most pastors eliminate their ministry because many seem to make it their primary aim not to edify or teach righteousness, but instead teach God’s people theological explanation for law breaking and excuses for sin.
Malachi 2:5 My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him [for] the fear wherewith he feared me, and was afraid before my name.
2:6 The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity.
2:7 For the priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he [is] the messenger of the LORD of hosts.
