John Piper Responds to Pastor David Yonggi Cho's Conviction for Embezzling $12M by Making Plea to US Pastors (Christian Post)

I've been annoyed with Piper for a while because of his blatant dallying with Driscoll, and Warren, etc. in effect enabling some of the dysfunction he's calling out in this article/video:

John Piper Responds to Pastor David Yonggi Cho's Conviction for Embezzling $12M by Making Plea to US Pastors

It's not quoted in the article, but Piper specifically slams the idea that pastors have "accountability" with other peers outside the church and other people with lots of money. Sounds like he’s finally, and rightfully, fed up with all the rockstar unaccountable megachurch pastors we are always hearing about, who systematically drive out anyone who would hold them locally accountable, so no one is able to rein them in.

Some really good advice to pastors or any leaders of any group.
