Actually, Moses and Aaron screwed up big time. Aaron made the Golden Calf, when he should have lectured the people. He gave in to "fear of man", instead of standing up for "the truth."
Moses screwed up and lost his temper. Then, along with Aaron, he claimed credit for bringing forth water from a rock. He lost his chance to see the promised land.
These are a couple of points that I raise when people get cultish and start preaching about the Magnificent 7:
1) There is only one "Greater Moses" and it ain't the "Slave."
2) No Israelite was ever required to follow a human leader, especially if that human leader was acting contrary to God's requirements. In fact, blindly following a human leader, or a crowd for evil ends, has never been an excuse that God accepts. For the most part, the Bible is chocked full of examples where the people sinned by following example of a bad leader.
3) "Anointed" or not, an Xian can be "ungrafted" from the "true vine" at any time.
4) I didn't dedicate my life to Tony Morris, or a Corporation.
A great question to reach the heart, or expose a legalistic Eldub is:
"If you had been present when Moses and Aaron were about to claim credit for bringing water from the rock at Meribah, would you have had the moral fiber and courage to warn them? Or, would you have remained silent, allowing Moses and Aaron to sin?"
This question has produced many blank stares. Needless to say, the Elders don't even check on me anymore.
