Does anyone have to point out the obvious? A Pastor? Sleeping with church members? That wasn’t bad enough? Lying by omission by withholding some rather important information; that he has aids? To say nothing about mishandling of church funds? Drug use? What is wrong with this picture? Is this “pastor” even a born again believer in Jesus Christ? The “fruit” of his “ministry” is pointing to a very different conclusion. Now only God knows the condition of this man’s heart, but I am surprised the church didn’t catch wind of the adulterous behavior. James 3:1 warns that those who are teachers will be judged by a stricter standard. How can a pastor justify breaking more than one of the Ten Commandments? May God have mercy when or if he truly repents.
One thing we should all keep in mind. Before we judge others too strictly, take a look at our own conduct and behavior. We are ALL fallen creatures, capable of sin at any moment. Praise God for his tender mercies toward us all.
