Something that has changed as I have travelled through ministry is my view of minor dishonesties or misrepresentations in the Church. Early in ministry, I sooner said that they were out of character, unintended, excusable, a mistake. Later in ministry I understand that most such incidents were significant. Most of them pointed to deeper ills, which in some cases became problems for the whole Church. Jesus said: "He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much, and he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much."
