If your youth attend Crossroads Church, you might want to know that the new youth minister, formerly the youth minister at Midway Macedonia, smokes out back with your kids. Kids that aren't old enough to purchase a pack of cigarettes!

If you are so concerned....why dont you call Greg himself rather than expressing your concerns here. GO STRAIGHT TO THE SOURCE!!

I have attended Crossroads a few times. The sermon delivered is generally good. However, too much of it seems like a "show" , a big production with loud music and glitz. This is not the type of church I would want to be baptized, married, or buried in. Most of the congregation seems fairly young, very few senior citizens in the crowd. Just not my cup of tea.

I'm not saying i'm by any means perfect but you'd think if you had a position in a church you could refrain from committing "adultery". Not that hard to be faithful.

Nobody is perfect and nobody is free of sin regardless of who you are and what you do.

Thanks for the link.

Crossroads, you should be very proud of your Pastor. Now that is the way to handle a crisis and the staff.

To bad other churches in this area have not handled situations like Greg did.

The Bible offers several different ways to tell if someone is behaving in a Christian way. Is your Minister, Pastor or Priest following the Bible's prescriptions? Here are four of the most important:

#1 - Christians keep quiet

In Matthew 6:5-8, Jesus tells Christians how to pray:

"And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him."
Does your Minister, Pastor or Priest pray in public like a hypocrite? Does he babble on and on? If so, he is defying Jesus.
#2 - Christians keep quiet 2

In 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12, Christians are encouraged to live quietly:

Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.
Is your Minister, Pastor or Priest living a quiet life, working with his hands and minding his own business?
#3 - Christians do not have wealth

In Matthew 6:19-21, Jesus tells his followers to give up on possessions:

"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

In Matthew 19:21 Jesus says:
"If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."
Does your Minister, Pastor or Priest live in a nice house, drive a nice car, wear nice clothes? Why? Why isn't he listening to Jesus?
#4 - Christians can demonstrate that they are Christians

In Mark 16:17-18, Jesus is very clear about what True Christians will be able to do to demonstrate their belief:

And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well."
Can your Minister, Pastor or Priest drink poison without dying? If not, according to Jesus, he must not believe.
Simply think about it. Jesus and the Bible are quite clear about these things. And your Minister, Pastor or Priest should have the closest connection to Jesus of anyone you know. Is your Minister, Pastor or Priest following the Bible? Probably not. There is no one you know who is doing all of these things. There is no Christian on earth who can drink poison without dying.

The reason why your Minister, Pastor or Priest ignores the Bible is because God is imaginary. If God were real, your Minister, Pastor or Priest would be following the Bible to the letter. And so would you.
